In the following installment, I check in with John D'Amore, president of Diameter Health, about his long term efforts to make healthcare data more actionable. We talk about the importance of interoperability and the different contexts for thinking about interoperability.

In the following installment, I check in with Cindy Jordan, the CEO of Pyx Health, a start-up offering a patient-facing app for combating loneliness and social isolation. We discuss how she came up with the idea for Pyx Health, how it finds and supports people with its app, and serving the most vulnerable people affected by loneliness and self-isolation.
Pyx Health recently issued a white paper on addressing whole-person needs, and the work it did with Banner University Health Plans. I encourage you to read it, if you wish to learn more.
