    S10: #100: Shawna Butler on Advancing Health Innovation Through Nursing Expertise

    Our guest: Shawna Butler, RN, MBA
    Shawna is a nurse economist and tech enthusiast. She is a leading advocate for the role of nurses in driving the development and use of technology across the healthcare sector. She works with companies of all sizes, from startups to global corporations, and she’s coined the term ‘EntrepreNURSE’.
    Shawna works with the pioneers who are integrating robotics, 3D printing, drones, AI, mixed reality, voice recognition, digital humans, big data and sensors into our health solutions and lifestyles. Her clinical experience includes emergency, cardiac, and critical care in both large university and small community hospitals, as well as international medical flight transport, and workplace health promotion services. She’s lived and worked around the world, and if you’re heading to Austin for SXSW, you’ll be able to meet her there. Shawna gives us some tips on how to make the most of a visit to that event.
    One of the newest roles Shawna has on her resume is that of podcaster! That’s right, Shawna and her executive producer Rebecca McInroy have worked with the teams at American Nurses Association and Johnson and Johnson to create the See You Now Podcast. You can of course pick that up on all your favorite podcast catchers, as well as on the healthpodcastnetwork.com.

    S10: #098: Dr. Jennifer Schneider, President at Livongo on Type 1 Diabetes, Engaging Users and Decoding Health Signals

    S10: #098: Dr. Jennifer Schneider, President at Livongo on Type 1 Diabetes, Engaging Users and Decoding Health Signals

    Our guest: Dr. Jennifer Schneider, President of Livongo
    After speaking with Glen Tullman, Founder and Executive Chairman of Livongo, in an earlier episode, I was so interested in the work that Livongo is doing that I asked for a chance to speak with Dr. Jennifer Schneider when we were both in Las Vegas for the HLTH conference. 
    Jenny is an amazing individual. She was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes over 30 years ago and has a deep understanding the real-world impact of the condition. She's been a key part of leadership teams for two companies that have gone public in recent years. The most recent one, Livongo went public in July 2019 and was the most successful IPO of a digital health company in history. She’s also an athlete, the author of a book entitled Decoding Health Signals, and the proud parent to 3 wonderful children. She writes in her book that her goal at Livongo is to create a system of health and healthcare that they will inherit and be proud of - and no doubt benefit from.
    Tune in as Jennifer shares her own experience battling the complexities of T1D, and how health signals help improve outcomes for people facing chronic illness.

Customer Reviews

Z in NYC ,

Fresh ideas and expert perspective

The title focuses on digital health, and that is the common thread between the always on-point episodes in this podcast. But the content goes well beyond technology, and addresses issues such as program implementation challenges in emerging markets and the impact of socio-economic determinants of health on health outcomes. Dan Kendall is an engaging and knowledgeable host. His guests are a great mix between leaders in the field - whose perspective reflects a wealth of experience - and emerging innovators who bring fresh perspectives and ideas.
