Technology alone will not save healthcare
Forbes
Todd Hixon writes: A post from fellow BCG alumus David Shaywitz gives the Silicon Valley view of healthcare reform, which, if it were an advertising slogan, might boil down to: "Longer living through better algorithms." Actually, I'm highly respectful of what software can do: I've made some "big data" investments, and there are obvious areas where data analytics can help with healthcare. A big example: All of modern evidence-based medicine is based on data science.

Study: Heart failure tied to higher cancer risk
Reuters
People with heart failure are also more likely to be diagnosed with cancer, according to a new study that followed older adults with and without heart problems. The findings don't prove that heart failure, when the heart can't pump enough blood to the rest of the body, causes cancer. Researchers said more studies are needed to determine what might explain the link.

The success points to a potential new strategy for treating those in the early stages of the disease, experts said.

Your DNA vulnerable to snooping, too?
USA Today
The science-fiction imagery of 1984 or Minority Report comes to mind amid the unprecedented revelations describing the National Security Agency's sweeping surveillance programs to data mine personal information on people in the U.S. and snoop on our allies. Imagine combining these dystopian realities with Gattaca, where in addition to trawling our personal communications, the government mines our genomes as well.

The rapidly changing oncology landscape: It is not just science
OncLive
It is hard to argue that there is not a revolution going on in oncology. Nearly every day, we hear about some new discovery of a molecular pathway that confers malignant potential or a novel therapeutic strategy to treat the disease. The pace of discovery is staggering, leaving oncologists bleary-eyed as they try to keep up. Running on a parallel track is another revolution in oncology: the business side of delivering oncology care.

TIME
If EKGs can detect potential problems in heart function, then doctors are asking why brain scans can't be used in the same way, to identify disorders like depression, autism or schizophrenia. Doctors have long relied on electrocardiograms to track the electrical activity of the heart, and find any potential aberrations in the normal pattern of blips and valleys that could indicate distress.
