The low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet is majorly trending right now. In fact, you probably know a few people who have tried it. Just like any other eating style, it works well for some people, while others find it impossible to stick with. And if you’re spending a lot of time in the gym, it’s natural to wonder: will it help or hurt your workout efforts? If you choose to try the eating style (or are considering it), you should know about how the keto diet changes your body’s source of energy. When that happens, your workout performance and how you feel during exercise can change, too.

How to Develop An ABM Strategy for Healthcare and Life Sciences

Article | March 5, 2020

Most physician outreach now takes place digitally or indirectly. This shift in engagement has made it crucial for sales and marketing teams in healthcare and life sciences (HLS) to be aligned with a unified strategy. That’s what we discovered at League. Founded in 2014, League is on a mission to consumerize health and benefits for employers. We started using Salesforce and Pardot in 2017. Back then, marketing and sales were disconnected, and this was impacting our overall performance in a negative way. Our solution was to develop our first account-based marketing strategy. We saw that ABM was a huge trend, and we loved the idea of choosing a set of target accounts, creating playbooks, and personalizing marketing campaigns to help drive meetings. Here’s how we adopted ABM at League, and the results of our ABM efforts.

The healthcare industry disruption nobody saw coming

Article | March 5, 2020

Almost all conversations about healthcare disruption focused on new entrants into the industry transforming parts of the traditional service model and taking market share. Politically, most of the conversation centered around whether we would dismantle the ACA, build it back up or move to Medicare for All. Despite all the noise about disruptors, politics and consumerism, I felt like incremental change was the most likely scenario. Although the industry had been changing – digital experiences and telehealth for instance – a revolutionary, wholesale change to our industry seemed far off to me. The odds of the system being truly disrupted – something like Medicare for All happening within the next decade – felt highly unlikely. And where are we know? It truly feels like there are forces brewing that could result in radical transformation and a complete, ground up rethinking of our entire system. As the COVID-19 crisis has unfolded, it has raised many serious questions that we’ll need to grapple with over the next 12 to 18 months. Where we land on these issues will have a profound effect on what healthcare in this country becomes for the rest of our lives.

Why Mobile Technology is Critical to the Global Fight Against COVID-19

Article | March 5, 2020

The last time the world experienced a pandemic on the scale of COVID-19 was the Spanish flu pandemic from 1918 to 1920. All told, 500 million people were infected, and an estimated 35 million people succumbed to the virus. That’s because over a hundred years ago, the medical technology needed to fight that disease was non-existent. There were no lab tests to isolate the virus and no vaccines to treat it. What medical experts did enforce back then were the closures of schools and public places. Citizens were told to stay indoors and were advised against close contact with other people. Instead of placing the thermometer under the tongue or in the ear, the operator simply scans a person’s forehead to obtain an instant temperature reading without any physical contact.

How COVID-19 Could Impact Digital Health

Article | March 5, 2020

As the world grapples with the tragic COVID-19 pandemic, it is tempting to imagine a post-COVID future that includes some silver linings. As terrible as the situation is today, maybe this calamity will at least lead to some lasting, positive changes, particularly in healthcare. Telemedicine has already emerged as the poster child for this line of thinking. Providers and patients have dramatically increased the use of telemedicine to ensure continued access to healthcare services while maintaining social distancing and respecting the enormous burden on our healthcare workers and facilities. Regulators and payers are encouraging and enabling this shift by temporarily relaxing policies that have limited telemedicine.
