Google outlines 4 long-term healthcare strategies

Karen DeSalvo, MD, chief health officer of Google Health, outlined four ways the tech giant plans to solidify its role in healthcare after the COVID-19 pandemic in an Oct. 17 blog post.

Four things to know:

  1. Google plans to use such products as it Fitbit fitness tracker to deliver daily actionable health insights to users, according to the post.

  2. It plans to use YouTube to partner with such health organizations as Boston-based Mass General Brigham and the American College of Physicians, to connect health information to patients via video.

  3. Google is developing ways to boost healthcare data interoperability. Its Care Studio aggregates patient information from different EHR systems to an integrated view. Google has been piloting the tool at hospitals, but clinicians soon will have access to a Care Studio mobile app to access patient information throughout the hospital.

  4. Google is tackling health equity to improve patient outcomes, according to Dr. DeSalvo. The tech company will continue to partner with industry experts and leaders to create solutions that enhance health on a global scale.
