As we consider this week’s dramatic current events, it seems that old news pops up into new news in weird ways. Elon Musk taking over Twitter is the big news story, for instance, but we noticed that his former relationship with Amber Heard keeps coming up in the middle of her defense against Johnny Depp’s claim of defamation. And while Elon Musk’s Mom totally nailed the “Gilded Glamour” motif of the 2022 Met Gala, it was Kim Kardashian who illustrates our old-news-pops-up-into-new-news theme when she wore Marilyn Monroe’s dress. With a nod to the fantastic reporting at Axios Pro that gave us the idea for our theme, we agree with Deena Shakir, a partner at Lux Capital, who said that all of the platform companies that are popping up (like Zus Health, Innovaccer, Graphite Health, Capable Health), have the opportunity to be something akin to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) of digital health. Basically, these platforms provide the infrastructure necessary — think storage, databases, analytics, networking, mobile, development tools, enterprise applications — to allow digital health solutions to build their tools faster. If these newish digital health platforms track AWS (it is the lead computing platform that generates most of Amazon’s overall revenue) — then we are about to see some dramatic health system transformation. We hope it will be just as transformative as Blake Lively’s Met Gala dress.
