Your HealthLeaders Industry News Update

Here's your quick briefing to help keep you up-to-speed on industry trends, news, and emerging technology impacting the healthcare industry, 

 

  • Renewed attention on how Amazon could shape (and shake) healthcare. Amazon, which already has a tech presence in some hospitals, finally named its much-hyped healthcare venture this month: Haven. We also had a story about how Amazon's physical footprint could feasibly serve as a beachhead for brick-and-mortar healthcare delivery—the company hasn't said it plans to head in that direction, but it's been pretty tight-lipped every step of the way.

  • Accountability tactics for nurse leaders. One of our most-read stories in recent weeks was on strategies to combat disruptive behavior among nurses. As part of the broader conversation over when and how nurses should be held accountable as individuals, we also had a lot of interest in our coverage of a Vanderbilt nurse charged with reckless homicide over a fatal medication error.

  • Lyft and other ridesharing companies prepare for greater healthcare involvement. While healthcare insurers and providers look for ways to maximize the quality of the care they're paying for and delivering, there's been a lot of talk about how the likes of Uber and Lyft can get involved. Lyft, especially has been one to watch in the past month as it prepares for an IPO.
