Google to build a ‘new digital health and regulatory strategy’

Bakul Patel, the chief digital health officer at America’s influential Food and Drug Administration which approves new drugs and regulates healthcare in the USA, has announced he is moving to Google to help them build a new digital health and regulatory strategy. It is not clear what the ultimate Google ambition might be but Patel said in a LinkedIn post: “The power of technology, when coupled with a unified digital health and regulatory approach, promises to transform people’s lives. I want to continue to build a world in which we use technology to engage individuals, caregivers and communities globally in care delivery, enabling us to reach populations that have long been overlooked, marginalized and underserved,” Patel will report to Linda Peters, vice president of quality, regulatory and safety at Google Health.
