1.) How Big Tech Is Going After Your Healthcare

by: Natasha Singer

Why we liked it:

Investment by the top ten tech companies in health care is up ten fold compared to 2012. Natasha lays it down for us in her informative article, citing that the healthcare market is much too big and personal to ignore and providing us with insights on what Apple, Microsoft, and Google is doing to shape the world of healthcare. We at Digital Authority Partners liked this because we see the huge opportunity that technology has when putting the patient in charge of their own health. Furthermore, this article makes a strong call for the digital transformation of the healthcare industry to put patients first so they are engaged with the products and services of their providers.  Read about it here.

by: Hannah Nichols

for: Medical News Today

Why we liked it:

Tis’ the season for new years resolutions! There are countless weight loss apps available out there that require manual entry of all the foods you eat and all your physical activity. This is a tedious task. Cue the SlipBuddy app! We at Digital Authority Partners liked this because SlipBuddy is one of the .05% out of over 28,000+ weight loss apps that involves expert opinions in its development by offering a behavioral approach to curbing overeating. This app also features yet another brilliant application of machine learning by predicting when the user is likely to overeat and offer behavioral advice on what to do instead.
