The Lantern Pharma IPO Raises Some Questions

We recently published a report on seven AI healthcare stocks noting that six were the result of recent IPOs. Of those, two are involved in drug discovery. We’ve written extensively about how machine learning and computational chemistry are speeding up the drug development process and decreasing the likelihood that drugs will fail. It’s all about […]

Nanox Uses Nanofabrication for Digital Medical Imaging 

Big disruptions keep coming in smaller packages. Take the handheld ultrasound machine from Butterfly Network, a startup out of Connecticut that has basically turned a smartphone into a digital medical imaging device. The company found a way to squeeze ultrasound technology onto a single silicon chip – and charge less than $2,000 in the process. The […]

9 AI Healthcare Startups Deploying Virtual Assistants

Some people watch beauty contests. We study lists that rank the smartest digital assistants. Googlers will rejoice to know that Google Assistant is the brainiest of the bunch.

A Computational Chemistry IPO From Schrodinger

Elon Musk once said that there’s a one in a billion chance we’re not living in a simulation. Sounds far-fetched until you start digging into simulation theory a bit. It’s backed by theories from leading academics, like Nick Bostrom’s “simulation argument,” which presents three likelihoods, each equally frightening to ponder. To paraphrase Arthur C. Clarke, it is […]

7 AI Healthcare Startups Automating Clinical Trials

It’s no secret that it’s extremely expensive to develop new drug therapies. One study estimates that pharmaceutical firms spend between $2 billion and $3 billion and more than a dozen years in R&D activities to get a new FDA-approved drug to market. An important step in the process is the clinical trial where human guinea […]

7 AI Healthcare Startups Digitizing Hospital Operations

We once had to rush a buddy to a hospital while cruising the steep switchbacks on Bali after his scooter zigged left and he zagged right. Aside from prison, hospitals are usually the last place you want to be in a Third World country. In this case, there was no doctor on duty at one […]

A Stock for Investing in Healthcare Data and Analytics

Anyone who has worked in information technology for a while knows about the old “diapers and beer” story which a fellow named Mark Madsen actually got to the bottom of a few years ago. The story goes something like this. Back in the early 90s, a woman named Karen Heath, a senior manager for health analytics with Accenture […]

8 AI Value-Based Care Startups That Took Funding in 2019

Earlier this month we told you about our trip to Finland where we came across a handful of innovative healthcare startups. Many see emerging technologies like artificial intelligence as a way to curb sky-rocketing healthcare costs, which are expected to hit about $10 trillion globally by 2022. In the United States, which spends about $3.65 […]

6 AI Healthcare Solutions for Remote Patient Monitoring

It’s no secret that big tech companies like Amazon (AMZN), Microsoft (MSFT), and Alphabet (GOOG), the parent company of Google, are investing in digital healthcare. The market opportunity is pretty enticing when you consider that the U.S. alone spent $3.65 trillion on healthcare just last year. Google made the latest headline-grabbing move when it announced […]
