Google is finally absorbing a healthcare business 10 months after the move was first announced
- Google has finally absorbed the healthcare arm of AI firm DeepMind, the British company it acquired in 2016 for £400 million ($US500 million). The integration is happening some 10 months after Google originally announced it.
- DeepMind Health is now officially part of Google’s dedicated healthcare unit, Google Health, which is headed up by big-name healthcare CEO David Feinberg.
- The announcement comes one month after the DeepMind cofounder who had headed up its health business, Mustafa Suleyman, confirmed he was on a leave of absence from the business for reasons that are unclear.
- The integration brings DeepMind’s controversial Streams app, a non-AI service that helps medical practitioners monitor patients with a kidney condition, under Google Health’s management.

Healthcare data’s moment of lift
The unlocking of patient data is leading us to a future when health care will be a vastly improved experience with superior outcomes. However, there will be guard rails around consumer access to personal health records.
- A group of healthcare institutions and technology providers has launched an open-source initiative titled CommonHealth to let Android-powered device users gain access to medical records. The initiative will dramatically increase the number of consumers who will have access to their medical records, essentially replicating Apple’s remarkably successful efforts to give iOS users access to health records from over a hundred participating hospitals and health systems.
- Allscripts, a health IT company, has opened up access to their Electronic Health Records (EHR) system to Apple, enabling patients from hospitals using the Allscripts platform to access their records over their iOS devices such as iPhones.
- Epic has launched a massive data compilation effort entitled Cosmos to aggregate over 20 million patient medical records from providers in a participation agreement designed to make the data pool available for analysis in improving care decisions.
