Changing Demographics and Dark Data – David Barnett’s Favorites

The digital healthcare world is gaining traction incredibly fast. How does our team at Datafy keep up with such a fast-paced industry? We read... A LOT. And, listen to podcasts, AND go to events AND talk to as many people as we can. Throughout the month, we often come across an article, book or podcast that really stands out above the rest. As our mission is to join an ecosystem of companies working to create a better healthcare system for all, we feel it’s our responsibility to highlight some of the best content resources surrounding the digital health world.

In this, our first Team Favorites post, our CEO, David Barnett, shares his favorite podcasts.

David recently started listening to Dan Kendall’s Digital Health Today podcast. The episode with Eliza Filby discussing changing demographics and their attitudes towards healthcare was especially interesting. Here are a few of the other podcasts David’s been listening to…


Dr Eliza Filby on Gen Z, Digital Health and the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy - Digital Health Today Podcast

Did you read above? ;)


How to Mitigate Cybersecurity Threats in Healthcare - Digital Health Today Podcast

Cyberattacks affected the healthcare industry immensely last year. It goes without saying that the healthcare industry faces unique challenges in cybersecurity. This episode features Ori Bach and Jonathan Langer to find out what providers and manufacturers can do to help prevent these extremely costly attacks.


Dark Data in Healthcare - a16z Podcast

A big issue within the entire healthcare system is not being able to collaborate with each other, which results in major missed opportunities all around. This episode features Susannah Fox (former CTO of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services); Anil Sethi (CEO and founder of Ciitizen); and a16z bio general partner Vijay Pande, to discuss having a sort of permissioned “permissionless innovation” for healthcare data, not only bringing all that dark data to light, but more importantly data and entities can talk to each other (à la APIs) through patients at the center of the circle of data.
