CVS Health is placing a big bet on beauty to fill in the lost revenues from going tobacco-free. Here are my thoughts on beauty and health @retail, with a nod to the Jewish Museum's Helena Rubinstein "Beauty is Power" exhibit -- http://healthpopuli.com/2015/07/27/beauty-health-and-power/

The AARP has studied older peoples' use of activity and sleep trackers with the Georgia Tech Home Lab. Their report's bottom line - lots of promise, but good design is key - here's my take on the Project Catalyst report - http://healthpopuli.com/2015/07/23/older-people-and-activity-tracking-aarp-weighs-in/

There's a new $20 activity tracker, and it's not the Xiaomi MiBand. It's the Misfit Flash Link, and it connects to the Internet of Things...for real. Here's my take on this disruptive non-wristband wearable. http://healthpopuli.com/2015/07/17/the-20-fitness-tracker/

Listen to the Sccop & Score podcast with Andrew Kahn and me discussing the Internet of Things and Wearables in Sports  http://healthpopuli.com/2015/07/15/sports-and-the-internet-of-things-the-scoop-score-podcast/. We cover a broad landscape from Under Armour and Adidas to the Reebok Checklight concussion cap and smart basketballs. We finally talk about Big Data and protected health information - with the example of Jason Pierre-Paul's finger injury and potential HIPAA violation by the hospital that served him. Listen on!

The Internet of Things could bring $1.6 trillion worth of value to healthcare, based on McKinsey Global Insitute's latest report looking at IoT opportunities across 9 industry sectors. Here's my take on the study - http://healthpopuli.com/2015/07/08/the-internet-of-things-in-health-mckinsey-sees-1-6-t-value/  In full disclosure, I provided input into McKinsey's research, and am gratified to see a wonderfully detailed and informative health/care chapter....
'Tis the summer of big, smart reports covering the Internet of Things (IoT) impact on health and fitness. Just this month, three of these missives have come to my inbox, and they all contribute sou...

Art foments social revolutions, as ACT-UP did in the 1980s when President Reagan was in denial about AIDS killing young men for 5 years until he uttered the acronym in public. I visited the glorious new Whitney Museum in NYC yesterday and had a deja vu...

High cost specialty drugs and lack of cures drive patients into activism as in the early AIDS era. Art plays a role in social movements including health.

Is Entresto from Novartis the new-new product launch model for pharma? The Rx for heart failure, which impacts over 5 million Americans each year, has had the largest clinical trial in its category, is looking to go at-risk for pricing and outcomes, and seeking partners for remote health monitoring and digital health. But at $4500 a year per patient, will it be too rich for consumers' health spending, two thirds of whom are Medicare enrollees? Read on in today's Health Populi...http://healthpopuli.com/2015/07/22/entresto-model-for-future-rx/

The 2015 Consumer Electronics Association forecast is out for retail sales, and it's "out with the old, in with the new-new" when it comes to consumers buying electronics this year. Expect sales to ratchet up for wearable tech (esp for fitness and health), smartwatches, and connected home gear, and lackluster sales for old school TVs, computers, laptops and tablets. Here's my take in today's Health Populi -  http://healthpopuli.com/2015/07/16/fitness-tech-will-boost-holiday-retail-sales-for-consumer-electronics/

PwC Health Research Institute's report on collaboration in health care is out, and tells pharma to play well in the sandbox with government/policymakers, insurers and PBMs, payors, and -- especially -- consumers/patients. Here's my take. http://healthpopuli.com/2015/07/13/collaboration-in-healthcare-drives-value/

More on the Internet of Things in healthcare, this time via Goldman Sachs whose new report on digital health impacts on US healthcare is spot-on. Here's my take on their deep dive into remote health monitoring, telehealth, and behavior change - http://healthpopuli.com/2015/07/09/iot-in-healthcare-take-2-goldman-sachs-weighs-in/

There's growing evidence that People-Powered Health/Care is growing - FasterCures launched the Science of Patient Input Project, USA Today featured Oscar health insurance that tech-enables plan members, and the Wall St. Journal had a dedicated section on how to take charge of your medical records yesterday. July 4th is Get My Health Data Independence Day for patients to request copies of their health information. Read on, in today's Health Populi -- http://healthpopuli.com/2015/06/30/people-powered-healthcare-celebrating-patient-independence-empowerment/
