Several of the world’s largest and most successful companies are investing in digital health, including Amazon, Google, and Microsoft. Amazon is heavily investing in health, across a number of different areas, and Google is likewise “ramping up its health cloud business.” Apple and Nokia recently announced a partnership on digital health, designed to advance medical support.
Amazon has also recently landed a health-tech hire from the company Box, a cloud content management and file sharing service for businesses. Missy Krasner, who previously helped build the cloud storage company’s health product, will transition to Amazon. Krasner was also a founding member of Google Health, the company’s online medical records and wellness platform.
