Announcements and Implementations

Walmart will offer mammography services using technology from RadNet at its Supercenter in Milford, DE (not, interestingly, a Walmart Health location). The MammogramNow pilot will use RadNet’s DeepHealth AI as part of the breast cancer screening service.

Athenahealth adds generative AI capabilities to its AthenaOne platform encompassing EHR, practice management, billing, and patient engagement technologies.

Research and Innovation


K Health develops a machine learning model using de-identified data from 17,000 Mayo Clinic primary care encounters that physicians have used to optimize blood pressure medication and treatment in hypertension patients.

A survey of physicians in the ambulatory space finds that most don’t have established relationships with post-acute care providers. While nearly 90% report receiving notifications when their patients are admitted or discharged from a hospital, just 63% are notified when their patients are discharged from a post-acute care facility. Notifications typically come via phone call or fax.



The local paper profiles the Idaho Health Neighborhood Center, which makes a point of hiring physicians from other countries as medical assistants while also providing them with time to study for their US medical licenses. Managed by Cornerstone Whole Healthcare Organization, the clinic values the expertise and cultural sensitivity these physicians bring to its rural and underserved patient populations.


The profile reminds me of a great movie I saw a few months ago on Prime: Based on a true story, Peace by Chocolate is, among other things, the story of a Syrian refugee who struggles to become a physician in Canada. If you’re looking for something uplifting and encouraging to watch during the holiday break, I highly recommend it.
