HOW THE EU'S TOUGH DATA LAWS WILL IMPACT THE US HEALTH INDUSTRY:
Health companies the world over are preparing for the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which goes into effect on May 25, 2018. The regulations aim to give individuals greater protection and control over their digital information and will impact not only EU member states, but any business that collects EU citizens' data. 

WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic said health workers had redoubled efforts to trace contacts with the patients. Health workers have drawn up a list of 628 people who have had contact with known cases who will need to be vaccinated.

"The next few weeks will really tell if this outbreak is going to expand to urban areas or if we´re going to be able to keep it under control," WHO's emergency response chief Peter Salama said at the U. tattoo capilar Marbella N. body's annual assembly.

The WHO said health workers were following up on three separate transmission chains for cases in Mbandaka's Wangata neighbourhood - one linked to a funeral, one to a church and another to a rural health facility.

For US healthcare systems, which already need to comply with HIPAA requirements, GDPR significantly changes the way physicians and digital health companies will approach patients and patient data, requiring things like: 

Jeremy Wright says cyberattacks on nuclear reactors or air-traffic control towers could have "the same ultimately lethal effects" as a bomb and should "give rise to an inherent right to take action in self-defense."

GE SELLS CHUNK OF HEALTHCARE BUSINESS TO VERITAS:
 GE Healthcare is selling its value-based care division to Veritas Capital for just over $1 billion, according to a joint announcement
from the companies. This includes the Enterprise Financial Management, Ambulatory Care Management, and Workforce Management assets, all of which focus on hospital workflow and administrative IT functions.  The deal, which is set to close during Q3 2018, is a part of GE CEO John Flannery's plans to slim down the company's offerings and sharpen its focus on software-related clinical care. GE Healthcare CEO Kieran Murphy says the company will continue developing and investing in core digital solutions that support precision medicine, such as AI, enterprise imaging, and smart diagnostics. Meanwhile, for Veritas, the deal is just the latest in a string of health IT investments, which have heavily focused on consumer-focused technology. The company aims to turn the value-based care division into a standalone business, which it believes will be well-positioned to secure a significant portion of the $9 billion healthcare market that's in "urgent need of digitization," according to Veritas CEO Ramzi Musallam.

US INSURER HOPES IN-HOME CARE WILL CREATE COMPETITIVE EDGE:
Clover Health, a San Francisco-based Medicare Advantage (MA) insurer, is deploying
an in-home primary care program with genomic testing for its most vulnerable members. The new program signals a shift in business models from one that focuses on customer volume to one that emphasizes value for its customers. That's because the majority
of MA beneficiaries are 65+ and covered primarily
by just a few top insurers. And as competition over this highly sought-after segment of customers heats up, Clover likely hopes the new program will drive up the lifetime value of its existing customer base. Clover has been handed a series of losses recently — a reduced Medicare star rating, unsuccessful contracts with new providers, and a legal setback to its push to expand into new states — all of which hurt its membership and revenue growth targets. Delivering primary care to the home means more patients will access preventative care, while genetic testing enables providers to prescribe more tailored drug regimens, reducing hospitalizations from adverse drug events. Legacy insurers will be keeping tabs on newer entrants like Clover Health, but it's unlikely this initiative alone is enough to differentiate Clover from other payers. Clover isn't the only MA insurer eyeing revenue growth from in-home care — Humana

have also made moves to deliver care to their Medicare members' residences.
