The Art and Science around the Patient Room of the Future

There’s a lot of folks in healthcare that are exceptionally blinders based. They’re super insular. They just want to do their own thing. No judgment there but in terms of actually moving the needle I think there’s going to have to be a lot of partnerships.
It’s amazing how much waste there is in healthcare. And the waste is broken down into different categories. JAMA released a study showing that 20 to 25% of the overall waste is administrative. So if you solve the administrative issues that exist in healthcare, the claims, the rejections, the number of times you have to submit the work, the number of people you have to do the work, et cetera, you’re going to move the needle forward.
This whole malware thing in healthcare is really getting people to think about endpoint protection. We have to do it. But in a way that doesn’t break everything else. We have to be able to operationally manage it. And we need something that’s not going to completely crush the environment.

Amplify great thinking to propel healthcare forward and raise up the next generation of health leaders.
