Susan Scutti reports for CNN on December 20, 2018:

A total of 340 San Diego County residents between the ages of 27 and 101 participated in the study.

Meg Bryant reports for Healthcare Dive on 12.5.18
The Leapfrog Group released its 2018 Top Hospitals list Tuesday, with Florida's 18 awardees bumping last year's list leader California into second place with 17 top hospitals. Texas and New Jersey also had strong showings, with 13 and 12 top hospitals, respectively.
Given its large population, one would expect Florida to be near the top of the rankings. That said, the #1 ranking is impressive. Why? According to data compiled by the American Hospital Directory (updated Summer 2018), Florida has 216 hospitals and 55,429 staffed beds. Meanwhile, California has 343 hospitals and 74,762 staffed beds. Texas has 367 hospitals with 59,329 staffed beds.

Charles Dinerstein, MD, MBA, in a November 18, 2018 KevinMD post, states:
 
Among the many recurring topics, this year has been the impact of machine learning in our lives, especially the implications for our future work life. Prophecies range from ubiquitous utopian machine servants to a dystopian ravaging, hollowing out the work and economic standing of the middle and lower classes.
