“Are we losing the battle against heart disease?” asks the lead article featured in the January 2023 issue of the AARP Bulletin.






“Despite breathtaking medical advancements since President Harry Truman declared war on heart disease 75 years ago, researchers have observed a disturbing trend that started in 2009: America’s death rate from heart-related conditions is climbing again,” the detailed essay explains.

Your Home as Clinical Lab: Withings Brings “Your Urine, Your Self” to #CES2023

We’ve all been morphing our homes into our personal HealthQuarters since the start of the coronavirus era. Millions of global health citizens have taken to telehealth who never used a health care “digital front door” before. Other patients adopted remote health monitoring to avoid perennial visits to doctors for managing chronic conditions like diabetes or heart disease.

From the kitchen to the bedroom, our homes have become our health hubs. And now, to the bathroom and specifically, the toilet. Withings, maker of my personally favorite connected weight scale, announced U-Scan, a direct-to-consumer lab test platform that analyzes our urine from the POT – the point-of-toilet.









I’m not being cheeky (sorry again, just too tempted) here — I’ve extolled the promise and virtues of our bathrooms as health destinations for many years, meeting up with tech and home innovators at CES over the past decade+, and keeping track of toilet innovations

Hotels, Hostels and Airbnbs: What’s the Difference and How to Choose Which Is Best

Planning a trip can be stressful, especially if you are planning to go overseas. Airbnbs can be great for those traveling on a budget. However, depending on your travel party, they can be pricier than a hotel—especially in Europe.

Don’t let the decision of where to stay put a damper on the unforgettable experience of your adventure. Let’s explore Airbnb vs. hotel pros and cons—as well as hostels—to help you narrow down your choices.

The Difference Between Airbnb and Hotels

Airbnbs and hotels differ slightly in ways you may not be aware of if you aren’t an experienced traveler. While you might be inclined to go with the cheapest option, you might want to consider whether you’re getting the most bang for your buck. Here is the difference between Airbnb and hotels.

In 2023, We Are All Health Consumers in Search of Value

Every health/care industry stakeholder will be in search of value in 2023, I explain in my latest post written on behalf of Medecision. In this essay, I forecast what’s ahead for hospitals, digital health innovators and investors, employers, pharma, and patients-as-consumers — all firmly focused on value in the new year.

“Inflation may make consumers and the healthcare system sicker,” Deloitte expects, signaling a sort of “unrest” for the healthcare ecosystem.





One of the most telling data points I include in my assessment of 2023 comes from GSR Ventures, which polled major health care investors on the now and future state of digital health funding.

This piece chart demonstrates that investors have value-based care on their minds, coupled with the consumerization of health care.

Celebrating the Holidays Far From Home

The holiday season is difficult for many. According to a survey by the American Psychological Association, 38% of people say their stress increases during the holiday season. It’s no wonder: high expectations, the pressures of gift-giving or the interpersonal challenges of large family gatherings could all come up around a holiday. And that’s without adding a new location to the mix. 

On a day when tradition is so highly valued, being away from your family or community can feel isolating. Here are some suggestions for travelers and people living abroad for making your holidays memorable, in a good way.

Why Hot Weather May Be Triggering Your IBS Symptoms While Traveling

Having irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is no fun. You might feel like you’re limited in where you can go and what you can do, especially in the summertime. Heat and diarrhea don’t mix, but you don’t need to feel confined to your home during the warmer months just because you’re worried about a flare-up.
