    "The move from paper to digital transformation finds us at an exciting point in the digital evolution of healthcare where we have the opportunity really to transform our industry.  How do we empower our patients to now use this information and understand the value of the information that we're gathering? First, we need to ensure the data is safe and private, and meaningful.  How can we now parse this information out as, as patients and healthcare providers to help our patients live healthier and empower our caregivers to deliver a more preventive model versus a reactive model of healthcare?  These are the questions we are facing as we continue the digital transformation journey."

Episode #22

The banter back and forth between the host and Kyle highlighted two whip smart individuals who are experts in their field. I found their tips very helpful and just what I needed to hear because I’m currently in a recruiting phase for my co. Highly recommend this podcast!
