This week we have a special bonus episode featuring a recap and insights from the 2017 HIMSS Conference that happened in Orlando last week. The HIMSS Conference brings together IT vendors, providers, payers, investors, and key thought leaders in the Healthcare IT space. Some 40,000 participants attended the lectures, panels, meetings and exhibits.
The webinar focused on using digital health solutions to restore the joy in provider practice and reduce burnout in the field.
In this week’s special interview I am joined in the studio by 3 guests to discuss digital innovation in healthcare around Behavioral Health: David Cohn, CEO, Founder of Regroup Therapy, Bob Saunders, General Partner at OCA Ventures, and my co-host for this episode, Neil Patel, President and COO of Healthbox.
This week we kick off the first episode in our 3-part series on the topic of Behavioral Health in the digital healthcare space! Our featured interview is with Chris Novak, who is the COO of the Behavioral Medicine Service Line at AMITA Health. During the interview, we discuss: Chris’s background and role at AMITA Health, what types of tools AMITA Health use as it relates to behavioral health innovation, and Chris provides some great advice to entrepreneurs in what they should be thinking about when pitching a health system and where this industry is still in need of innovation.
This week’s interview is a bonus episode recorded during the Healthbox Chicago Studio week in November of 2016 with Matt Schneider. Matt is the founder of Save On Medical, an online marketplace that uses price transparency to help patients make informed care decisions based on cost, quality, or convenience while locking in discounted prices with no hidden fees.
