CMIO News to Know for the Week of July 6th

We are closing in on our 100th episode! Happy July 4th weekend and I hope your holiday was safe and social distanced. This week I cover that HHS is extending the public health emergency another 90 days; telehealth payment rules are part of this emergency. Walmart plans to expand its health supercenters; currently at 4 but plan for how you will respond before they move to your market. Howard University is partnering with digital Apps to help with diabetes management; crowded space but more research in this area is welcome. Finally, I talk a bit about "digital front doors" and 2 articles that cover the need for seamless patient experiences. I have a guest coming on within the next 2 weeks (Paddy Padmanabhan, CIO) to talk more about why this topic is important for CMIOs.
