September 1, 2020: Drex DeFord joins Bill to bring you the news. They tackle the big topic of going back to school. How are different colleges and universities handling it? 

Sharp Healthcare is the first to deploy Amazon's new Halo health wearable which tracks activity, body fat and emotions. We can’t wait to see the results and how it will help their clinicians. Contact tracing, Google and issues of privacy. We simply don’t know where our data is going or how it's being used. Ascension Michigan health system is laying off and outsourcing 223 IT jobs. Yikes. And a Tesla employee was offered $1M to install malware. How worried do we need to be about internal cyber attacks?

Key Points:

  • Abbott labs came out with a $5, 15 minute test [00:20:20]
  • University of Illinois mandatory testing plus health passports required to attend class [00:21:00
  • Health style TSA for football games [00:25:30
  • Contact tracing and issues of privacy [00:24:15]
  • Further discussion on HHS back to CDC [00:30:10]
  • Google Cloud and Amwell partner on telehealth [00:30:55]
