    CancerX Initiative Aims to Reduce Cancer Deaths by 50% by 2047

    CancerX Initiative Aims to Reduce Cancer Deaths by 50% by 2047

    The Digital Medicine Society (DiMe) and Moffitt Cancer Center have announced they are co-hosting CancerX, a new public-private partnership effort to rapidly accelerate the pace of cancer innovation in the U.S.
    Alongside the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH), Moffitt Cancer Center and DiMe are urging the healthcare and digital health sectors to boost technology-driven initiatives to combat cancer. The two groups are working together to accelerate cancer research advancements, and they invite other organizations to do the same.
    The Biden administration's revived Cancer Moonshot includes the new CancerX public-private partnership. According to officials, the goal is to use industry collaboration and disruptive innovation to lessen the burden of cancer on everyone.
    The CancerX program will focus on using digital innovation to reduce disparities and financial toxicity in cancer care and research, working with government organizations, and will enlist industry parties to help with the mammoth undertaking.
    CancerX uniquely blends DiMe’s expertise in convening cross-disciplinary groups to develop clinical-quality resources on a tech timeline with Moffitt’s top research and care experts working side-by-side to revolutionize cancer treatment, extend access to the highest-quality care, and save more lives. The initiative is open to all those working in the field who are committed to working collaboratively and share a vision of unleashing the power of innovation to design and create a future that's free of the burden of cancer.

    Guest Host: The Progress and Promise of Predicting Complications in Pregnancy

    Guest Host: The Progress and Promise of Predicting Complications in Pregnancy

    I’m glad to be back on the mic and bringing you this special episode of Digital Health Today 360. Why is this episode special? Let me explain.

    One of the goals of the Digital Health Today channel is to create a space where people can learn about great innovation that can improve the health of both individuals and entire populations. 

    Over the years, as I’ve been creating my own show, I’ve also had the opportunity to expand and serve the health community in other ways. Along with my colleagues at Mission Based Media, we’ve created other audio-first resources to share more information. For example, we created Health Podcast Network to showcase other high-quality, human-centered and evidence-based podcasts. Health Podcast Network now has about 100 different health podcasts and 13,000 episodes. 

    We also worked through the pandemic to add new shows to Digital Health Today such as the DTx Podcast with Eugene Borukhovich, where he dives into the nascent digital therapeutics industry.

    And, most recently, we launched a library of podcasts called Health Unmuted where we create and share short-format, narrated, audio stories to help people understand more about specific health conditions. We launched the proof-of-concept miniseries last year called COPD Podcast. In June we launched the 5-part miniseries about Alzheimer’s Disease, and this month, in July, we’ll launch a 7-part miniseries about Parkinson’s disease.

    Why am I explaining all this? Because all this work at the intersection of health and podcasting has given me a chance to experiment with different formats, styles, content and audiences, and it’s also made me realize that I love creating this show.  

    It’s also made me more aware than ever that there is so much more that needs to be shared.  

    So, in this special episode, as I fire up the recording studio and prepare some great conversations with guests over the coming weeks and months, I thought I’d stand aside and invite another podcaster who is doing some great work in an area that needs much more attention.  

    Georgie Kovacs is the founder and host of Fempower Health - the go-to resource for all things women’s health serving women, their providers, and companies looking to build and improve on products for women. Georgie is really open about her first-hand experience with infertility and endometriosis. With that experience, she was motivated to start a podcast - in the middle of COVID, and as a single parent. Now if that’s not passion, I don’t know what is.

    You can find her show, Fempower Health, on Health Podcast Network.

    In this special episode, Georgie spoke with Dr. Michal Elovitz. Dr. Elovitz is the Distinguished Professor in Women’s Health at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and she’s also the Chief Medical Advisor at Mirvie, a company creating a personalized window into pregnancy health.  

    When it comes to women’s health, I’ve been astonished at the tremendous need for improvement, funding and resources, and at the same time, I’ve also seen some incredible innovation that is happening that needs more attention, awareness and funding!

    And despite the U.S. having the highest maternal mortality rate among developed countries, health risks in pregnancy health have remained understudied, underfunded, and underserved. Pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia, preterm birth and gestational diabetes impact 1 in 5 women, and with no accurate way to predict them before symptoms appear, both moms and babies are often in crisis mode when diagnosed in their third trimester. 

    In their conversation, Georgie and Dr. Elovitz explain one of those complications, preeclampsia, and explore how better screening can help.

    Let me know what you think of this episode. Drop me a line on Twitter or LinkedIn and let me know!

    Thanks for tunin

    Who's Responsible for Ethical Decision Making? Promoting Trust in Technology and Healthcare

    Who's Responsible for Ethical Decision Making? Promoting Trust in Technology and Healthcare

    Technology is under the microscope, as are the behaviors of the people who develop and deploy it.

    As technology impacts virtually every aspect of society, it's use within the life sciences goes beyond traditional bioethical topics. 

    This creates a host of questions for people and businesses working at the forefront of health innovation.

    In this episode, hear Nick Bott, Global Head, Bioethics and Technology Ethics at Takeda as we discuss:

    What is being done to ensure that the decisions around the use of technology for our health and wellbeing are carefully considered and applied? 

    Whose job is it to address the ethical questions in the development of AI and ML algorithms? 

    How can life science companies lead the way in setting standards for ethical development?

    What can we learn from Tony Stark - otherwise known as Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

    What is a 'consequence scanning workshop'?

    What is the role of regulation in setting standards and principles?

    Jane Sarasohn-Kahn on Women's Health, Social Determinants of Health, and the 'She-cession'

    Jane Sarasohn-Kahn on Women's Health, Social Determinants of Health, and the 'She-cession'

    Guest host Sophie Park interviews health economist Jane Sarasohn-Kahn for this fast-paced discussion about women's health, social determinants of health and the 'she-cession' in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
    We've seen the headlines during COVID-19: Rising caseloads. Millions of lives lost. Economic devastation. Schools closed.
    But these only tell part of the story.
    The impact of the pandemic on mental and physical health extends far beyond those that are directly infected with the disease.
    Delayed diagnosis, canceled or delayed treatment, loss of employment and the collision of home and professional responsibilities has had a tremendous and long-lasting impact.
    Join Jane Sarasohn-Kahn and guest host Sophie Park in this discussion about the affects of the pandemic.
    For more discussion about women's health, check out the video panel with Jane and Sonia Millsom, Chief Commercial Officer of Maven Clinic, on the September 9 Digital Health Forum.
