Google has tapped Dr. David Feinberg, who has served as chief executive of Danville, Pennsylvania-based Geisinger since 2015, to help it develop and expand its healthcare strategy. Feinberg will be tasked with organizing and innovating Google's various healthcare initiatives, some of which overlap, according to CNBC, which first reported the hire. The many projects of Alphabet, Google's parent company, with healthcare-focused activities include include: Verily, its life sciences division; DeepMind, which develops artificial intelligence; Google Brain, which also works on deep learning AI; Google Cloud, which hired a major health system CEO of its own earlier this year; Nest, which makes connected IoT devices for the home; and Google Fit, the health-tracking platform.
