If you were reinventing health insurance, how would you do it?Maybe you and your friends would put money in a shared account for a year. Anyone who needed #healthcare could take some out. If money was left at the end of the year, you might each take a share, or just leave it in for next year.Now imagine that a few of you went skiing. Remarkably, you all fell and hurt yourselves and needed MRIs. Your friends went to hospitals that charged $2000, and they each took $2000 out of the account. You went to a top-rated imaging center that only charged you $1000, and better yet, they said they’d offer the same deal to everyone else with your “insurance.”What if you took $1000 out of the account to pay for your MRI, and also got to keep a portion of what you saved the group — say $200 — for finding (...)
Microsoft is closing its HealthVault patient-records service on November 20 | ZDNet
Microsoft is dropping its HealthVault patient records-management service, the company notified customers via email today, April 5. The service will be shut down on November 20 and any data residing in the service will be deleted after that date.
HealthVault was one of the last pieces left of Microsoft’s original foray into first-part health services products. Recently, Microsoft officials said they were ending support for the Microsoft Health Dashboard applications and services as of May 31. Early last year, Microsoft dropped its HealthVault Insights application.
HealthVault is a service for storing individuals’ health and medical records and information so they can be shared with health professionals. Microsoft launched a beta of HealthVault in 2007 and went live with the service in 2009. Microsoft was still updating its HealthVault documentation on the docs.microsoft.com site as of December 2018.
Microsoft is not giving up on the healthcare market. In February this year, Microsoft Healthcare announced it was making generally available its Healthcare Bot Service; adding more healthcare-specific features to Teams; and adding new health-record integration capabilities to Azure and Teams. But like it has been doing on many fronts lately, it seems to be getting out of the consumer-facing part of the business.
Microsoft made its initial foray into healthcare over a decade ago, but ended up retrenching and selling off most of the health assets it originally acquired. A couple of years ago, Microsoft announced it was creating a new healthcare-focused research unit, Healthcare NExT. Healthcare is one of Microsoft’s highest priority verticals, as it’s a growing and pervasive market.

The protocol doesn’t dictate which foods to eat, but rather when you should eat them. While it has been around informally forever, I.F. came into the mainstream in 2016, after Professor Yoshinori Ohsumi was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his research on the role of autophagy (i.e. how (...)
Why Decent’s serving freelancers first
The future of work deserves the future of health #insurance.Before starting Decent, I spent six months working as a freelancer. I did paid growth projects from a hot desk at a coworking space in San Francisco, and got to know the other freelancers there — gifted developers, creatives, and business professionals with the courage and skill to bet on themselves.

In our professional lives, work fatigue creates its own unique challenges, the effects of which may be further reaching than we think.Scientists aren’t yet certain what causes work fatigue, but most of us have experienced some symptoms of this phenomenon at one point in our career. When faced with feelings of fatigue, the best place to start is by looking at our own sleeping habits. On its own, tiredness is usually resolved after a couple nights of quality sleep, whereas work fatigue can set in even for individuals with healthy sleep patterns.
