Richard the Third, in the famous play by Shakespeare, begs for a horse after his own falls in the battlefield leaving the king at the mercy of his enemies. 

This past week, I spoke at a virtual event hosted by a Silicon Valley organization where the audience included a number of entrepreneurs and technologists from a wide range of industries. One of the questions posed to me during the Q&A was why telehealth has taken so long to gain acceptance.

Big tech has been making a big splash in telehealth and digital health lately. In my latest article in CIO online, I discuss how Microsoft, Amazon and Apple are getting deeper into healthcare services and what it means for traditional health systems.

Last week, Microsoft became the first major tech firm to offer a video consult feature using Teams that can launch directly from within the Epic EHR system. The development is significant for two reasons: there is a need for an advanced video platform that goes beyond native capabilities available in EHR systems, and this may be the moment that Microsoft officially became a telehealth company among other things.
I’m asked often about the emerging competitors in the healthcare space, specifically non-traditional competitors such as big tech firms. In the past couple of months, a handful of the big tech firms have sent clear signals about their strategy for targeting consumers with health offerings.
In a recent Power Panel survey with Modern Healthcare, CEOs shared how they are using tech to change the way they engage with consumers in the midst of COVID-19. I share my thoughts on how healthcare is going to feel like a “drive-through” experience.
