Insightful

Plenty of health IT podcasts out there, but this is the only one to engage the audience with high-caliber storytelling, which is sorely needed in this data-driven industry. The hosts do a great job offering valuable insights from history and offering commentary on current events. Plus the interviews are usually legitimate leaders in the space. 5 stars.
