“Simple is better than complex”. One of the Zen rules of Python. A language that gets things done is part of the reason it continues to grow. And it’s not owned by any one company is a plus as well.
The news primarily happened last month…
The attached article referring to a CNBC report goes into some detail about how this deal is structured and from Amazon’s viewpoint, allows for better integration with their recently announced Pillpack acquisition to achieve their pharmacy dominance footprint, leaving CVS/Aetna, Walgreens, Walmart, and others in their wake. It is only a matter of time before Amazon formally acquires Xealth because most of the pieces would be in place to make a multi-Billion dollar business bet that Amazon is noted for. Plus there are natural ties to Amazon through their partnerships.
Amazon and Seattle startup Xealth are working on a pilot program that will let doctors ‘prescribe’ items for delivery to patients’ homes, CNBC reports. The report comes just weeks after Amazon…
Thank you @JLTechword for pointing this out to the broader audience. Also for bringing an example on a competing/cooperative platform that proves it can be done.
One of the aspects of the Python community is just that, the ability to learn from peers and to see real people solving real problems. This ongoing series highlights this. Special thank you to Mike Driscoll for this series of blog posts.
Having recently launched a blockchain-as-a-service offering, SAP envisions logistics companies using blockchain in tandem with IoT to help gain unprecedented traceability into the supply chain. Yet despite high level of interest in the technology, adoption of blockchain in enterprise is sluggish. A total of 77 percent of CIOs state that their employers are uninterested in the technology, according to a ZDNet article citing Gartner research.

This is a true inspiration to everyone, not just those that are #a11y friendly.
As I read this article while attempting to keep up with interesting HIPAA articles, I did some quick research on Wikipedia, Bing search engines, and the Federal agency that covers this topic. I couldn’t find any reference to caching and storage, which is central to attaining the truth on which political position is correct on the subject. Long story short, a planned maintenance Internet outage occurred; some staffers used their smartphones loaded with an app to access Personal Health Information; no agreement on the correctness of this action bordering on partisanship.
I believed that it is the job of journalists and editors to gather facts on the subject in question and present them in the article, or at least the updated version online after a printed story. Disclaimer, I did not go to journalism school at Auburn University.
Two branches of Oklahoma’s government are embroiled in a controversy over whether the Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs committed a HIPAA violation.
That time of the week again. Though I’m still in the Newbie phase, there is hope for the rest of us to pick up the torch and move forward. As I see it, since Python will transpile to most other languages, and I’m not a natural coder, but an advanced end user, this will work for me. Plus not a fan of the curly bracket languages that dominate the Web.
There are two things that are needed for success here:
- This device can also monitor blood glucose levels with a separate sensor as well as a bodyfat % recorder.
- Medicare, Medicaid, VA Health, and private insurers mandated to pay for this and related items.
My comment on this article from Disqus:
Especially since Medicare/Medicaid won’t pay for the current monitors at home, and few private insurers do as well, though the tech is such that it’s HIPAA compliant, and family doctors and their staff can be alerted to issues before they show up at the quarterly exam periods.
