Researchers at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine have launched the MILBox Project, which aims to create a person’s digital twin using health and environmental data collected at home from wearables and in-home sensors. AI could then be used to evaluate and deliver more precise treatments and medications than would normally be available with anonymized patient data culled from a larger population. The first phase of the project will study the link between poor sleep and health disorders.

Cue Health airs its first Super Bowl commercial, touting its smart home testing lab voiced by actress Gal Gadot. The company offers an integrated care platform that includes virtual care, COVID-19 testing, and diagnostics. (Gadot is no stranger to home-based digital healthcare, having invested, along with her husband, in virtual care app K Health last November.) Fun fact: NBC sold 2022 Super Bowl ads for as much as $6.5 million per 30-second commercial. San Diego-based Cue has raised nearly $1 billion over the last seven years.

I love this: Physicians in four Canadian provinces are now able to prescribe national park passes to patients through a partnership with Parks Canada and the PaRx Initiative, which was inspired by a similar program for physicians in the US. The program recommends that patients spend two hours in nature each week, for at least 20 minutes at a time. “There’s almost no medical condition that nature doesn’t make better,” according to family physician and PaRx Director Melissa Lem.
