On today’s edition of THCB Reader: Rob Palmer, Isaac Freedman, and Josh Hyman argue that in-person voting will worsen the public health crisis; Logan Cho believes that we need a health care institution that can be equitably accessed by all people at all times; and Mike Magee discusses the next ensuing pandemic, and the results of it, will be dictated by the November election. We have 2 episodes of Health in 2 Point 00 for you today. On Episode 134, Jess and I discuss Livongo’s stock price, Brian Dolan’s PPP “Black List” for health tech startups, Oak Street Health & GoHealth filing their S-1’s and more. On Episode 135, we discuss Amazon’s entry into primary care through its partnership with Crossover Health, UnitedHealth Group launching Level2, and a whole lot more. Remember to join us LIVE TODAY for #THCBGang Episode 18 from 1PM PT/4PM ET. I am speaking with some of our regulars: writer Kim Bellard, policy expert Vince Kuraitis, MD turned leadership coach Maggi Cary, and guest Suneel Ratan, GM of Collective Medical Technologies. Enjoy!– Matthew Holt

So long as SARS-CoV-2 remains a threat, in-person voting is a public health crisis—and the sanctity of the relationship between health care workers and patients transcends political ideology. With that, healthcare workers, please encourage patients to register for mail-in voting, please pressure elected representatives to endorse common-sense public health policies that will protect our patients’ lives, and please partner with any of the myriad organizations that are working locally and nationally to help American citizens vote safely in the coming elections.

The impact of COVID-19 will extend beyond the individual, effecting fundamental and long-lasting change to our health care system. Taken together, the inaccessibility of medical care, deteriorating mental health, increasing poverty, worsening access to nutrition, and host of other challenges present a dark, impending storm. Now, more than ever, we just need a health care institution that can be equitably accessed by all people at all times. 

July 16, Mike Magee
With the ongoing, cascading catastrophe of Trump’s mishandling of COVID-19, it is easy to lose sight that the next pandemic (fueled by global warming, global trade, and human and animal migration) is just around the corner. And we haven’t even begun to nail down the origin story of this one. Answers to our questions on these origins and many others that affect the future of our nation await the results of November’s election.
