Google hires a health care CEO to organize its fragmented health initiatives

Google hired Geisinger Health CEO David Feinberg to report to AI's Chief Executive Officer Jeff Dean and worked closely with CEO Sundar Pichai to organize Google's diverse healthcare ventures.

We've been interested in health care for some time. The current efforts are fairly fragmented and span teams of parents, including Nest, Verily, Calico, DeepMind, and Google Fit, as well as parent Alphabet. In 2008, we launched a project called Google Health to integrate medical data from patients held by other medical institutions. Ultimately, in 2013, we opened the way for Google Fit, a fitness ecosystem for Android phones and WearOS Smart Watch. Google Fit believes Nest, a subsidiary of Google Home, is working to get into the digital health business, but it's a company-only product that's focused on health so far.


In July Nest quietly acquired health monitoring boots Senosis. CNBC said the company is integrating a Nest device that can detect falls while talking to elderly people's facilities and is automatically turning on lights with motion sensors when people wake up and go to the bathroom at night.

Feinberg's president, Jeff Dean, leads Google's AI research division, which manages Google Brain. Google Brain is a deep learning AI research team sometimes called "Medical Brain" internally. According to CNBC, Google Brain's recent research project, Medical Digital Assist, uses artificial intelligence speech recognition to help physicians make notes during a hospital visit.

Other Google teams like Search and Cloud are helping your company's health plan in more sophisticated ways, such as adding fact-finding medicine. Provides information to the Knowledge Graph and provides cloud services to healthcare providers. In July, Google Cloud hired a former Cleveland Clinic CEO, Toby Cosgrove, to talk to the Cosgrove team and find that they are particularly interested in creating apps for hospital modernization.

Google's parents Alphabet Verily and Calico. Most recently, Google and Verily scientists used machine learning to analyze the eye-scan data set of 300,000 patients to assess patients' risk of heart disease. On the other hand, calico has a more ominous goal of "healing death" to prolong human life. Google has invested $ 1.5 billion in genomics research to uncover the secrets of aging.

Payneberg's employment is an indication that he wants to integrate many health initiatives. Throughout the Web services, software, hardware and AI support bets, sources expect Feinberg to present a strategic direction, the Wall Street Journal said. It is unclear whether his role will include experimental efforts by the alphabet.
