    Healthcare Beyond The Pandemic

    At Rock Health, we’re proud to fund and support entrepreneurs working at the intersection of healthcare and technology, and work alongside a diverse group of enterprise leaders making healthcare massively better—always, but especially now. We need collaboration as a rising tide to lift all boats—especially as the COVID-19 crisis accelerates trends reshaping healthcare as we know it.

    Rock Health President Tom Cassels recently sat down with Advisory Board Senior Research Partner Amanda Berra, Accenture Senior Managing Director Darryl Jue, and ZS Managing Prinicpal Pete Masloski. They discuss what’s next for healthcare in light of COVID-19, and how industry leaders must adapt to the forces that will become more prominent and pervasive in the post-pandemic world.

    How Industry Heavyweights Are Fighting In The Match Against COVID-19

    How Industry Heavyweights Are Fighting In The Match Against COVID-19

    How are healthcare organizations navigating the pandemic response, and what lessons are they learning along the way? We recently spoke with leaders from three Rock Health corporate partners—Blue Shield of California Chief Innovation Officer Jeff Semenchuk, Banner Innovation Group Executive Director Christy Anderson, and Strategic Benefit Advisors National Clinical Leader Louise Short.

    From their respective corners of the industry—a health plan covering over 4M lives, a nonprofit health system, and an employee benefits consulting firm—they note that some trends are here to stay: a consumer-first mindset, an appetite for innovation, and the widespread shift toward supporting whole-person health.

    Conversation moderated by Kiersten Berg, Senior Business Development & Partnerships Manager at Rock Health

    Opportunities In Healthcare’s New Regulatory Era: Dr. Karen DeSalvo & Eric Hargan

    Opportunities In Healthcare’s New Regulatory Era: Dr. Karen DeSalvo & Eric Hargan

    Across administrations, there has been a concerted push toward empowering patients with access to the health data that are rightfully theirs. After much anticipation, in early March, HHS released two final rules to implement interoperability and patient access provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act. At the same time, the US—and the rest of the world—found itself in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic. More than ever, the health crisis has accelerated the need for the public and private sectors to unlock health information and deliver value to consumers through new care models, services, and even scientific advancements.

    Rock Health Managing Director & CEO Bill Evans caught up with two national healthcare leaders who played an integral role in ushering in this new regulatory era—Google Health’s Dr. Karen DeSalvo and HHS Deputy Secretary Eric Hargan. They discuss implications of the new rules, how stakeholders must balance data access with privacy protections, and the opportunities they see for innovation and collaboration going forward.

    How Consumers Are Navigating The Digital Healthcare Experience

    How Consumers Are Navigating The Digital Healthcare Experience

    There's Instagram and Instacart—but how close are we to Insta-health? While the healthcare experience is increasingly digital, privacy issues, the changing patient-physician relationship, and differences across population segments paint a more nuanced, complex picture of consumer behavior. And a critical question has yet to be fully answered—what value is flowing back to the patient?

    The authors of the 2019 Digital Health Consumer Adoption Report—the Stanford Center for Digital Health's Dr. Mintu Turakhia and Rock Health's Sean Day and Megan Zweig—recently sat down and parsed through the findings from the fifth annual survey of 4,000 Americans about the role technology plays in their healthcare journey.
