On today’s edition of the THCB Reader: Joe Flower, in part one of his series, discusses how the shift from the current single-input health care model to new, innovate models will help consumers access the system; Michael Millenson challenges the notion that health tech, health policy, and academic research will independently improve health care, and states that PIPE (a Partnership for Innovators, Policymakers and Evidence-generators) may be better equipped to handle the issue; and Robert Miller & Marielle Gross add a piece to the “Health Data Goldilocks Dilemma” series, listing a handful of new technologies that allow others to learn from your data without compromising your privacy. In this week’s episode of Health in 2 Point 00, Jess & I talk about Ginger’s, VillageMD’s, & Health Recovery Solution’s funding rounds, and comment on Livongo’s stock price drop & uBiome filing for bankruptcy. On the WTF Health show, Jess talks to Todd Park, Co-founder of Devoted Health, about being Barack Obama’s CTO & how the value-based payment system is opening up opportunities for payment model innovation. Also, be sure to give our HardCore Health Podcast episodes a listen below. Enjoy!-Matthew Holt

Health care costs far too much, is far too wasteful, and still can’t seem to take care of everyone. No system can long survive working so vividly at cross-purposes to the needs of its real customers and buyers. So, how do we shift from the current single-input model to new models that will bring us closer to our customers and help us do the job we are here to do? In this five-part series, Joe Flower lays out the argument, the nature of the instability, and the best-bet strategies.

Sept 11, Michael Millenson
Can combining health tech “rah-rah,” health policy “blah-blah” and the “meh” of academic research accelerate the uptake of digital health innovation? The common objective is better health for every individual and a higher-quality, more cost-effective health care system. PIPE – a Partnership for Innovators, Policymakers and Evidence-generators – can help ensure that actionable health data fulfills its transformational potential for reaching that goal.

Sept 9, Robert Miller, Jr. and Marielle Gross
What if there was a way for you to allow others to learn from your data without compromising your privacy? There are a handful of exciting new technologies that may enable us to gain the benefits of our collective data without giving up our privacy: Zero Knowledge Proofs, Federated Learning, and Blockchain. We must advocate for and demand that these and similar innovations be embedded into the future of our data and our health.
