Pour les francophones: a nice feature of Lanthier - Practical Guide to Internal Medicine

It's all in the execution. Unfortunately, I don't think they have the manpower and/or knowledge to do what they set up to do.

This is cool; I'd be more interested in finding out what makes them so resistant to radiation; potential for increased therapeutic ratio of RT?

The new release of Lanthier, our flagship app, was just released! Very proud of this accomplishment. Thanks +Benoit Essiambre for the hard work.

a great day for those involved in tech and healthcare. I'm hopeful this new company will bring sate of the art tech to the field.  Finally someone is tackling this issue.
I’m excited to announce Calico, a new company that will focus on health and well-being, in particular the challenge of aging and associated diseases.  Art Levinson, Chairman and former CEO of Genentech and Chairman of Apple, will be Chief Executive Officer.

OK … so you’re probably thinking wow!  That’s a lot different from what Google does today.  And you’re right.  But as we explained in our first letter to shareholders, there’s tremendous potential for technology more generally to improve people’s lives.  So don’t be surprised if we invest in projects that seem strange or speculative compared with our existing Internet businesses.  And please remember that new investments like this are very small by comparison to our core business.

Art and I are excited about tackling aging and illness.  These issues affect us all—from the decreased mobility and mental agility that comes with age, to life-threatening diseases that exact a terrible physical and emotional toll on individuals and families.  And while this is clearly a longer-term bet, we believe we can make good progress within reasonable timescales with the right goals and the right people.

Our press release has a few more details though it’s still very early days so there’s not much more to share yet.  Of course when Art has something more substantial to communicate (and that will likely take time), he’ll provide an update.  Finally, thanks to Bill Maris for helping bring this idea to life and getting Art involved, and to Sergey Brin for consistently supporting 10X thinking like this.  It’s hard for many companies to make long term investments.  So I’m tremendously excited about the innovative new way we’re funding this project.  Now for the hard work!

After much thought and discussion (on iMedicalApps), I still don't see how this device would impact my management in any way.  Then again, I'm no cardiologist.
