On Whatever Wednesdays, Nathan is joined by our co-hosts, Tim and Bernie, to discuss the hottest healthcare topics of each week.

This Weeks Topics

  • Amazon just announced its partnership with J.P. Morgan and Berkshire Hathaway to start a non-profit healthcare venture. Little details have been released but what does this mean? How will it change the healthcare landscape?
  • Apple is improving its health app to help with EHR interoperability. Will they become the next EHR leader?
  • Zebra technologies released a study about mobile devices in healthcare which gives us an insight into how health providers will operate in the years to come.
  • Anthem Health Insurance is being criticized for its rules on ED reimbursement. States are quickly moving to put legislation in place against their new policies. Vox’s article by Sarah Kliff lays out the argument nicely.
