First the combination of Berkshire Hathaway, Amazon and Citibank – we can’t even remember the name it came and went so fast. Then Google Health was formed, supporting over 500 employees to transform the way health care is delivered. Apple followed suit. And now…the first guys are gone, Google just announced it was pulling the plug, and Apple said it has scaled back a specific health team focused on its internal health app.
So wait, is it really that hard, and why is it that the great tech companies couldn’t solve the problem of administrative waste, health care delivery efficiency and all the other items the federal government said they can solve just by expanding Medicare? Huh?
