Welcome to Digital Health Briefing, the newsletter providing the latest news, data, and insight on how digital technology is disrupting the healthcare ecosystem, produced by Business Insider Intelligence.The e-commerce giant began reaching out to hospital executives in January to discuss transforming its marketplace from a business with a limited selection of medical supplies to a major supplier of products, according to the Wall Street Journal.The company will instead focus on distributing medical supplies to hospitals and smaller clinics.The decision isn't surprising — Amazon canceled a pharmaceutical wholesaler application for Maine in December 2017, telling regulators that it had no intention of selling drugs.It’s likely the company’s reasoning behind the move was driven by factors like lacking the necessary infrastructure to transport drugs and having trouble breaking ground in the firmly established pharmaceutical supplier market.And while it’s possible that Amazon is simply delaying a pharma push as it develops its relationships and infrastructure, the company faces an uphill battle, making it an unlikely outcome in the near future.
Maybe the chance to land an Apple Watch could help.That's what UnitedHealthcare is hoping, anyway.The company is integrating the Apple Watch into its UnitedHealthcare Motion digital wellness program, which gives people access to activity trackers that then allow them to earn up to $1,000 a year if they meet daily walking goals.The company announced the addition of the Apple Watch on Wednesday at health information and technology conference HIMSS in Las Vegas.After paying tax and shipping, anyone enrolled in UnitedHealthcare Motion can get an Apple Watch Series 3 and have the option to apply earnings from the program toward buying the device.After that, their earnings are deposited into their health savings account or health reimbursement account to help cover out-of-pocket medical expenses.
Folks living with Type 2 diabetes may soon have a better way of managing their medical condition.At CES 2018, health insurance provider UnitedHealthcare and continuous glucose monitoring company Dexcom announced a new pilot program centered around wearable tech to help those with Type 2 diabetes better address their health in real time.“With more than 27 million people nationwide living with Type 2 diabetes, there is urgent need to address this epidemic in new ways,” Brian Thompson, CEO of UnitedHealthcare Medicare and Retirement, said in a statement.Under the new pilot, eligible UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage plan participants will be able to leverage the Dexcom Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System to keep tabs on their glucose levels throughout the day, helping them better match actions with outcomes.The system is comprised of a sensor, generally worn on the abdomen, that detects glucose levels immediately beneath the skin.A companion transmitter sends this information to a smartphone, which interprets and displays the data every five minutes to help map the relationship among eating, exercise, and blood sugar that are difficult to observe with only test strips and a glucose meter.
Using this data, physicians are able to get a more complete picture of a patient's history.Under this agreement, Arcadia is expected to focus on aggregating data that is related to claims and risk stratification, such as risk scores and gaps in care, into MEDITECH's Web EHR.For example, risk scores, which calculate the likelihood of an individual experiencing a certain outcome, such as an emergency admission or the development of a serious illness, can be powerful tools for healthcare professionals.And as more healthcare systems move to this model — the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has already made a commitment to tie 90% of Medicare payments to a value model by 2018 — EHR solutions that provide the tools to improve efficiency, lower readmissions, and drive down medical costs will grow in demand.VA AWARDS 1VISION HOME TELEHEALTH DEAL WORTH $260 MILLION: On Tuesday, the US Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) awarded telehealth vendor 1Vision an exclusive contract worth up to $260 million to provide home telehealth services for US veterans.This will vastly improve the ability of veterans in the US to seek out and receive care from their doctors.

America's largest insurer seeks new marketing partnerAmerica’s largest health insurance payer has launched a media agency review amid a period of great political uncertainty regarding the future of the industry.UnitedHealth Group recently issued an RFP calling upon agencies to handle media planning and buying for all of its brands (including UnitedHealthcare) in the United States, according to three parties with direct knowledge of the matter who spoke to Adweek on condition of anonymity.A UHG spokesperson had not provided an update on the status of the company’s marketing business at the time this story was published.All parties who discussed the matter stated that the review remains in its early stages and indicated that agencies from MDC Partners, Publicis Groupe and WPP’s GroupM are involved in the pitch.Omnicom, IPG Mediabrands and Dentsu Aegis purportedly cannot participate due to conflicts regarding other health care clients.

Health insurance startup Oscar Insurance Corp. will reevaluate its approach to Obamacare after suffering significant losses under the U.S. program and will pull out of two markets next year.Oscar, which pitches itself as a tech-savvy alternative to traditional health insurers, plans to end sales of Affordable Care Act plans in Dallas, a market it entered this year, and New Jersey.It s part of a more conservative approach by the New York-based company as it plans to introduce insurance products for businesses next year.The individual market isn t working as intended and there are weaknesses in the way it s been set up, Chief Executive Officer Mario Schlosser said in an interview.We want to focus on the markets we understand well, we want to focus on the markets where we have our own model in place.Closely held Oscar, is backed by venture capital firms including Josh Kushner s Thrive Capital, Founders Fund and GV, which is Alphabet Inc. s venture capital arm.Yet the company, with its cartoon ads on New York subways and consumer-focused approach, has run into many of the same problems that have forced bigger, more experienced rivals like UnitedHealth Group Inc. and Aetna Inc. to scale back from the Affordable Care Act s exchanges as well.Oscar was said to have been valued at $2.7 billion earlier this year, when it took in $400 million from backers led by Fidelity Investments.Quarterly filings aren t available in New Jersey.Oscar has about 130,000 customers, including 7,000 people in Dallas during its first year in the market there.
Aetna announced Monday that due to grave financial losses, it will dramatically slash its participation in public insurance marketplaces set up by the Affordable Care Act.In 2017, Aetna will only offer insurance policies in 242 counties scattered across four states—that s a nearly 70-percent decrease from its 2016 offerings in 778 counties across 15 states.The deep cuts have largely been seen as a blow to the sustainability of the healthcare law, which has seen other big insurers also pull out, namely UnitedHealth group and Humana.But the explanation that Aetna was forced to scale back due to heavy profit cuts doesn t square with previous statements by the company.In April, Mark Bertolini, the chairman and chief executive of Aetna, told investors that the insurance giant anticipated losses and could weather them, even calling participation in the marketplaces during the rocky first years a good investment.And in a July 5 letter PDF to the Department of Justice, obtained by the Huffington Post by a Freedom of Information Act request, Bertolini explicitly threatened that Aetna would back out of the marketplace if the department tried to block its planned $37 billion merger with Humana.
