Does the future of health tech look like Facebook? Can we cut corners with Covid-19 vaccines? And are journalists slowing down Operation Warp Speed?
We discuss all that and more this week on “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. First, we talk about the implications of a big acquisition in health tech that will merge a telemedicine provider with a diabetes coaching company. Then, Johns Hopkins scientist Steven Salzberg calls in to discuss his whirlwind week on the Internet after a blog post on Covid-19 vaccines became a lightning rod. Finally, we delve into just how much those vaccines might cost and whether nosy journalists are making the process take longer than it otherwise would.
