We launched our Web3 Content Creator Community.
And it has been exciting. We have received some interesting feedback from readers and our community.
The primary purpose of this project is to educate healthcare professionals about the importance of web3 technologies, like blockchain, NFTs, and the metaverse, to healthcare delivery and practice.
Read the first article of this project published in partnership with Small_bites of CryptoCurrents:
Web3 is the internet of the future and its impact will be felt across all industries on the face of the planet. And the healthcare ecosystem is not left out. How will Web3 technologies, especially blockchain technologies, the most widely used Web3 tech influence healthcare delivery, and practice?
We also launched a separate newsletter on Beehiiv dedicated to digital health.
Reports, commentaries, insights, and thought leadership about the digital health ecosystem will be published exclusively in "The Digital Health Report
Making Medicine A Team Sport | Robert Pearl, LinkedIn.

Digital Health & Healthcare Innovation

Digital health: An opportunity to advance health equity |McKinsey & Company
"Digital technology can narrow the equity gap in several ways, from streamlining difficult-to-navigate medical bureaucracy processes to eliminating travel and transportation factors from healthcare access. Access is limited by two chief constraints: affordability and availability."
New medicines need not be tested in animals to receive U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, according to legislation signed by President Joe Biden in late December 2022 |Science
"In order for a drug to be approved in the United States, FDA typically requires toxicity tests on one rodent species such as a mouse or rat and one nonrodent species such as a monkey or dog. Companies use tens of thousands of animals for such tests each year. Yet more than nine in 10 drugs that enter human clinical trials fail because they are unsafe or ineffective, providing grist to those who argue that animal experiments are a waste of time, money, and lives."

Relying on agency nurses carries patient safety risks – study | Nursing Times
"While agency staff have an important role to play, this study, likes others, shows that there is an important balance to be struck – for patients' sake – and ministers' failure to grip the situation, or even acknowledge it, means we're heading in completely the wrong direction,"
"With the potential risks in mind, you're probably wondering how much screen time is fine and how much other children tend to get. While there are many opinions, most experts agree that less screen time is better, especially for infants and toddlers."
