Here are 6 recent healthcare moves from Google

Google continues to expand its presence in the healthcare. Becker’s has highlighted six healthcare moves from Google recently.

  • Google has partnered with health systems on data-powered projects to improve health equity, patient flow and value-based care. The so-called healthcare data engine accelerators seek to improve data collection and analysis of socioeconomic determinants of health; to supply patient flow metrics to aid in the elimination of bottlenecks; and to combine claims and clinical data in order to determine population health indicators.
  • Sound Life Sciences, a spinoff of the University of Washington that developed a breathing-monitoring application, was acquired by Google.
  • The company entered into an agreement with EHR vendor Epic to enable health systems to migrate their EHRs to the cloud.
  • The tech giant has partnered with COTA to make sense of unstructured data from electronic health records. Google also entered into an agreement with Epic to enable health systems to migrate their EHRs to the cloud.
  • Meditech and Google Health are teaming up for a clinical search tool. The tool embeds Google Health’s search and summarization capabilities within Meditech’s EHR system. It creates a longitudinal view of a patient’s health history directly within the clinical workflow.
  • Google, Highmark Health and League are forming a new digital health platform. It will help members with scheduling appointments, managing prescription drugs and other services.
