From the transcript:

Michael Krigsman:

(05:00) What are we actually speaking about and how does this relate to the broader changes that are going on regarding healthcare and ultimately, the impact on healthcare for people? For patients?

Richie Etwaru:

(05:24) Well, I think most of us understand siloes pretty well, right? These are vertical departments within large companies that tend to perform a specific function. And then they perform that function well, but if you look at multiple of those siloes together as a broad organization, you’ll see inconsistencies and gaps to be solved for. I think, with the pharmaceutical industry, there was a time when it was okay to have siloes. Not that you wanted them, but if you had them, it was not the biggest deal in the world, and we’re seeing what I like to call the “three waves” of change enter the environment of the pharmaceutical industry that’s creating the financial reality and quite frankly, the competitive reality, to start to think about what the business model looks like and take the siloes out. These three waves, I think, most people would recognize.

(06:15) Now, the first wave is what came from the supply side. So, I think of this as the patent cliff, right? I think we’ve heard enough about the patent cliff that the supply of discovery of drugs in the pipeline has changed quite a bit. And, the good thing about the patent cliff is that it was sort of contained within the pharmaceutical industry, right? Yes, there was some implication too of the stakeholders, but it didn’t radically change the landscape because each pharma company was suffering from the same strain from a supply side.

(06:47) The second wave is what I like to call the wave coming from the demand side. This is the influence and the pressures of reimbursement being changed, payment terms being changed. I think what we see in the United States with Obamacare and the model of delivery has created a tremendous amount of strain that created a whole new wave of pressures for the pharmaceutical industry. So, I think that’s the second wave.

(07:18) Where we are today is what I like to call the “third wave” of change that’s coming through the pharma industry. And, this is the digital health and technology paradigms that are entering at the same time. Now, the patent cliff is not completely solved for. That’s still moving over, right? The changes in the […] are not completely solved for. That’s still here. And, we have this new wave that’s being driven by this new stuff that Milind is talking about, which is more data, digital health, some of the new technology paradigms. What’s interesting about this third wave is that it is not self-contained in the pharma industry or healthcare.

Milind Kamkolkar:

(14:46) Yeah. I mean, if I could just add one last thing, Michael, to that point, I think where the time, perhaps has that risk-averse nature in the pharmaceutical industry is that perhaps I’m like… banking in other such industries… The reality is that if you get this wrong, people die, right? And that’s the real crux of it. So, I can fully appreciate and respect the fact that sometimes, you do want to be a little bit cautious because, of course, who wants to create a medicine or some kind of patient service that really is not yielding a positive outcome?

(15:19) So for one, I’m quite grateful for the fact that we are basing more medication and pricing, and reimbursements, etc. really on health outcomes. But I think, in many ways, it’s not just the actual medicine that has to take into play, it’s also the customer experience at point of treatment that needs to be part of that equation as well.

Our Holographic Universe Will be the Greatest Discovery of All Time l Update Prophecy TV
There is enormous proof that our universe is holographic, if true it’ll be the strangest medical discovery of all time. It is now becoming clear that searching at phenomena via a holographic lens may be key to solving a number of the most confusing problems in physics. Physicists currently presented the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one huge projection.

The universe present as a ‘hologram’ is the idea that the 3 dimensions we understand are sincerely simply “painted” onto the cosmological horizon – the boundary of the recognised universe.

Superbugs That Resist Antibiotics Can Evolve in 11 Days | I Contain Multitudes

Antibiotics like penicillin have a critical role in medicine, but using them is not a decision to be taken lightly.

Before the discovery of penicillin and other antibiotics, a cut on your knee or an ear infection could kill you. In 1928, a physician named Alexander Fleming found that a mold in one of his petri dishes was killing the bacteria he was trying to grow. This strain of mold formed the basis for one of the most significant medical discoveries in history: penicillin. Antibiotics soon became lifesavers, and so precious that unused penicillin was reclaimed from patients’ urine to give to others. However, even back then, Fleming knew that bacteria could become resistant to penicillin. In this episode, Ed Yong explains how serious the situation can become: “Bacteria have always been evolving ways of resisting the things that try to kill them. And now the overuse of antibiotics is exacerbating that problem.” Ed looks at shocking new footage of mutating bacteria thriving in antibiotics a thousand times stronger than can kill their non-superbug ancestors.
