Two researchers work inside a lab at the biotech company Moderna.

Inside Moderna's labs

Andrew Dunn and Allison DeAngelis traveled out to Norwood, Massachusetts, the site of Moderna's research hub. 

There, they learned about Moderna's work with the US government to try and miniaturize vaccine development to the size of a 6-foot cube.

It could speed up development, helping thwart future outbreaks.

Amazon Web Services CEO Andy Jassy

Amazon Care is pitching insurers

Amazon's change in CEO wasn't the only big news out of the tech giant this week.

Blake Dodge and Shelby Livingston broke the news that Amazon's medical-care service, Amazon Care, has been talking to health insurers including Aetna about getting coverage. 

Doing so would be key for Amazon's healthcare ambitions, and potentially widen the customers it could work with.

Who owns medical practices

This week, Shelby looked into how a group of health insurance upstarts are employing doctors from the start.

It's a bid to lower healthcare costs and compete with health insurance giants.

Jade's first story at Insider looks at who's buying up medical practices and doctors. Hospitals, private equity investors, and health insurers own 70% of all doctors in the US, according to a new report.

That has big implications on how much healthcare costs, as well as how it's delivered. 

Here's what's playing out>>

Hospitals, big investors, and insurers bought 22,700 doctors during the pandemic in a race that could shape the future of healthcare

Finally, Mohana Ravindranath whipped up a list of 5 healthcare upstarts raising millions to take high-tech primary care to LGBTQ+ people and minorities.

After working on a list of primary care companies looking to change how healthcare is delivered, she focused in on those who were looking to increase access to care to underserved populations.
