MarketNewsUpdates.com News Commentary
One of the biggest problems in health care is the difficulty of sharing medical records for patients-to-providers as well as between providers. As Medicare and private payers move toward more value-based care reimbursements, physicians need information to both accurately report data and monitor complex patients across multiple providers. Streamlining information sharing between patients and their caregivers can go a long way towards making the patient experience a positive one. New collaborations are being introduced to the market for the purpose of patients being able to share data to improve their understanding of medications, lab results, plan of care and follow up appointments. Active stocks in the markets this week include Medical Innovation Holdings, Inc. (OTC: MIHI), Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), Teladoc, Inc. (NYSE: TDOC), Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC), HCA Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE: HCA)

In other healthcare developments in the markets this week:
Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase & Co said on Tuesday they will form a company to cut health costs for hundreds of thousands of their U.S. employees, setting up a major challenge to an inefficient U.S. healthcare system. The move by three of the best-known U.S. business leaders - Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Berkshire's Warren Buffett and JPMorgan's Jamie Dimon - would take on the world's most expensive healthcare system, whose mounting costs have hurt corporate profits. Shares in U.S. healthcare companies fell across the board. The new, not-for-profit venture will initially focus on technology for "simplified, high-quality and transparent healthcare" for their more than 500,000 U.S. employees. They did not elaborate on their strategy, but said they are searching for a chief executive officer. Healthcare industry experts say the new entity could eventually negotiate directly with drugmakers, doctors and hospitals and use their vast databases to get a better handle on the costs of those services.
Teladoc, Inc. (NYSE: TDOC), the world's largest and most trusted provider of virtual care delivery services, announced this month the commercial availability of its integrated mobile app experience. Members can now benefit from a single, patient-centered point of access to answers for a wide array of medical needs, as the app combines the high frequency care services traditionally provided by Teladoc, along with the expert specialty medical and second opinion services of Best Doctors. Following the successful limited release to select clients in Q4 2017, the integrated app is now commercially available for all joint Teladoc and Best Doctors current and future clients.
Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC) closed up over 2% on Tuesday trading over 3.3 Million shares by the market close.

HCA Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE: HCA) closed up just under 4% on Tuesday trading over 6.5 Million shares by the market close. HCA Healthcare, the largest U.S. for-profit hospital operator, said its quarterly revenue rose 8.7 percent as more patients were admitted to its hospitals.

The company's shares, which were down in premarket trading before the results, reversed course to trade up 7 percent.
