The Unconventionals

Google isn’t a health care company—they don’t treat patients, fund care, or make drugs or devices. But If you want to understand where healthcare advances will come from, you could do worse than watching where Google is placing its bets. On this episode of The Unconventionals, we’re talking to Google about solving big problems in health care. Our guest is Mark Rosenthal, who is head of health services at the company.  

Google's mission is to organize the world’s information, and that includes health care. We will discuss how the company is applying intelligence—from its data engines and from partners like the Mayo Clinic and Harvard Medical School—to make health-related searches more useful. We’ll also talk about Google’s mobility and access initiatives to enable better health, such as:

  • How the Google Fit platform is giving us a more complete view of personal health by integrating data from our devices and apps
  • How Google and Novartis are partnering to deliver a glucose-sensing contact lens to diabetics 
  • How Google Cardboard and modified Android phones are aiding the diagnosis and treatment of disease in the developing world
