The Highway to Healthcare Newsletter August 2022

Posted August 3, 2022
By Miona Short

The past month has been sweltering with healthcare news, so we’ve gathered a small sample of what’s top of mind for our industry peers. Between Amazon’s One Medical acquisition, sinking digital health funding, and the economy’s impact on different areas of healthcare, there’s a lot to process.

Redox gathered a report with HIMSS to determine what health system decision-makers are looking for with certain digital health tools. When we understand exactly what they’re looking for, we can build solutions that tackle big problems, like maternal health and health equity.

BUT, if you’re looking for something a bit more tech-forward, we’ve got some product updates at the bottom.

Btw, We’re still iterating on the name of this newsletter. Any suggestions? We’re obviously partial to 80s rock and 00s rap puns 🙂
