Why subscribe to 33 charts newsletter?

33 charts is a newsletter that explores technology and medicine. It was started in 2017 (on another platform) by me, Bryan Vartabedian.

Thousands of health professionals, executives, journalists and independent thinkers have trusted 33c to keep them informed of off-beat developments in healthcare and technology – issues that reflect obvious, or sometimes not-so-obvious, change.

Digital Exhaust, the core 33 charts letter, ships every weekend as a collection of short-format, high impact summaries of the best stuff I’ve found in health and technology. Usually these are news pieces that reflect the turbulent undercurrent of healthcare.

I’ll also be sharing select mini-essays.

33charts focus

My focus of the letter will change over time. Here’s what I’m obsessed with right now:

  • How AI and ChatGPT are changing the role of the health professional.

  • How are doctors and patients changing due to new health care technology?

  • The future of work — What’s the future role of the doctor and the APP?

  • How is transparency and information flow changing medicine?

  • How is information overload creating a crisis of knowledge and attention?

How I see the world of medicine and healthcare

This is an amazing time to be in medicine. Despite cynicism over changes in the healthcare, we’re witnessing the most radical disruption of healthcare delivery and technology in generations. So I see myself as helping to narrate that experience through personal encounters and analysis of current events. I try to offer context to what’s happening.
