In this installment, I check in with Aneesh Chopra, cofounder and president of CareJourney, about the importance of data access for patients and across care providers in healthcare. We also look at the challenges hampering this access and what can be done about it, as well as how the coronavirus pandemic has impacted these ongoing efforts.
In this installment, I check in with Mads Vittrup, CEO of Denmark-based FlexRay Medical, about the challenges of doing business in multiple countries during coronavirus lockdowns, the future of trade shows and industry events, and the impact of the pandemic on medical equipment purchasing.
In this installment, I check in with Dr. Chris Hobson, chief medical officer at Orion Health, about the importance of a care provider's ability to access a patient's medical background. They discuss the roadblocks to obtaining this data, and how a health information exchange (HIE) can help resolve them.
