MEDICA, the world’s leading medical trade fair in Düsseldorf which attracts over 5,000 exhibitors from around 70 countries, is becoming an even bigger hotspot for innovative young companies. From Monday to Thursday, MEDICA will reflect the worldwide trend of digitalisation within the healthcare industry with a focus on start-ups.

Story highlights Some health systems are exploring the idea of using artificial intelligence One doctor worries it could affect continuity of care for patients (CNN)One morning, Charlie Latuske woke up feverish and somewhat delirious in his home in Surrey in the UK, leaving him unable to function and in need of a doctor. He'd endured a sore throat and general malaise for a few days, believing it would get better, but that morning in August 2017, he knew that he had to do something about it. "I was quite out of it," said 27-year old Latuske, who was also due to go on vacation with his wife in just three days. Short on time, he dreaded the idea of calling his local general practitioner only to wait days or even a week for an appointment, or to wait in a queue for an emergency appointment. "I just needed to be seen without messing around with queues," he said. "When you're that ill, that's the last thing you want to do."

Gratuitous holiday snap of the day: The first in a new daily series, possibly. Here’s failed UKIP leader Henry Bolton posing with his young girlfriend Jo Marney (come on, you remember) in Vienna. Some of the replies are worth a look. DRIVING THE DAY SCHOOL’S OUT FOR THE SUMMER … But Brexit is not going away. The government’s plan to drip-feed public warnings throughout August about the impact of a no-deal Brexit means that in Westminster, the silly season will be dominated by rows about the impact of a hard break with Europe. We got a flavor of what’s in store yesterday with Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab’s less-than-reassuring answer to the Commons Brexit committee about the need to stockpile food (“It would be wrong to describe it as the government doing the stockpiling”), and Health Secretary Matt … [Read more...] about POLITICO London Playbook: School’s out for the summer — Juncker vs. Trump — Pakistan at the polls
Let’s get straight to the point. Women need the new health secretary, Matt Hancock, to act now. If he wants to revert the damage caused by his predecessor to women’s health and to the NHS in general, he had better move quickly. Another cabinet reshuffle is only around the corner. Hancock has big bad shoes to fill. Jeremy Hunt – the man who insisted on widening his remit to include social care in January, then scuttled off to the Foreign Office seven months later – drove junior doctors to strike against their low pay and working conditions, oversaw the memorandum of understanding which allowed the Home Office to use previously confidential patient information to target illegal immigrants, and resisted calls to make a very simple change that would transform many women’s lives: allowing them to take an abortion pill at home. There is room for cheer, however. In his first speech on the job this week, Hancock outlined his top priorities for the NHS, including … [Read more...] about ‘Allowing women to take the abortion pill at home would be a great first step for Matt Hancock – and for the NHS’
