Hot Topic that should healthcare leaders agenda:
How do we deliver more personalized and
precision medicine? Analytics and integration of care with
communities and social services so we can influence the social
determinants of healthcare.
How have you created results by doing things
differently? The success we've had is due to
the time spent with various stakeholders in technical, legal and
administrative groups in order to get the system off the ground.
We address the human element and make specific models
targeting specific indications (like pediatric asthma).
Setbacks that you learned from:
"Fail early and fail often." In 2008-2009
while at SG2 we built an algorithm for a value index that provided
many useful metrics. It was powerful, elegant in design,
however, it did not take off. Lesson
learned: If you build an outstanding product that is
useful and elegant (a nice to have vs. a need to have) and if there
is no incentives to change, the market will not adopt it.
Innovation must be grounded in solving real problems.
"Let's not lose track of the fact that we are making
moments: Joining the PCCI team.
Really proud to reimagining the way we're going to be
addressing our healthcare problems. Also super proud of the
team at PCCI.
Exciting Project: Doing things like using the Amazon
Echo to help address issues with medication management and other
things to reach patients in their home. Working together with
the support of Parkland
is a great opportunity.
