Lessons from the Coronavirus: The Relationship between Public Health and Business

John Whyte, M.D., chief medical officer for WebMD, is a medical professional who has been on the forefront of public and private health sectors as a regulator, researcher, educator, and media executive. In his current role, Whyte leads efforts to develop and expand strategic partnerships that create meaningful change around important and timely health issues. He is particularly interested in evaluating consumer trends in digital health, and how innovations–especially in technology change the way health care is delivered. 

While at the FDA, Whyte worked with health care professionals, patients, and patient advocates, providing them with a focal point for advocacy, enhanced two-way communication, and collaboration. He helped them navigate the regulatory process in a way they could comprehend. In addition, he launched the Drug Trials Snapshot program that details the participation in clinical trials for all new drug approvals – the first in a series of efforts by the FDA to help improve diverse representation and streamline the clinical trial process.
