Four years ago, hosts Chris Boyer and Reed Smith discussed the impacts that the “disruptive healthcare trifecta” – Google, Facebook and Amazon – were predicted to have on the industry. In this episode, they reflect back on how these organizations have evolved and changed their strategies. They cover Google Health’s recent announcement of expanding the AI capabilities to organize patient data, Facebook’s shift to an ad-centric model (and the challenges of misinformation), and Amazon’s recent acquisition of One Medical as a cornerstone in their strategy from more than five years ago. Are these three companies still causing as much disruption as was predicted four years ago? Tune in to find out!
