Google’s Newest Healthcare All-Star: Karen DeSalvo

Former Millennium Alliance Keynote Speaker & Obama Administration Health Official, Karen DeSalvo, has recently been appointed as the first Chief Health Officer at Google. The tech giant has recruited an all-star group of healthcare leaders, including former FDA Commissioner, Dr. Robert Califf, in stride of their ambitious efforts to disrupt the US healthcare market. 

Some of the most notable projects on Google Health’s radar include research on AI-driven cancer diagnosis to catch the disease before becoming life-impairing, as well as computer eye-screenings for diabetic retinopathy prevention, the leading cause of preventable blindness.

According to CNBC, “DeSalvo will advise Google on providers, doctors and nurses across the company’s cloud unit and Alphabet’s life sciences arm Verily, where she has been on the advisory board.” 

Given DeSalvo’s extensive background in both the public and private sectors, and her mainstay mission for affordable, high-quality healthcare for all, we’re excited to see how she’ll contribute to Google’s vision for a tech-enhanced future in healthcare. 

Digital Healthcare Transformation Assembly

The future of healthcare is digital. With the FDA providing clarity with the launch of new regulations regarding digital technology in 2018, developers and healthcare industry stakeholders alike are working to transform the patient experience.

The healthcare landscape is changing. The on-demand patient increasingly favors digital technology and platforms. According to Pew Research, a third of Americans have gone online and searched symptoms, in an attempt to diagnose a medical condition.

The US healthcare industry is unique, as it markets direct-to-consumer or direct-to-patient. Digital marketing technology is enabling healthcare marketers to talk directly to consumers in a new, more engaging way.

The Millennium Alliance is pleased to announce our bi-annual Digital Healthcare Transformation Assembly will be taking place on November 20-21, 2019.
