WTF Health | Kyruus co-founder, Julie Yoo

WTF Health – ‘What’s the Future’ Health? is a new interview series about the future of health and how we love to hate WTF is wrong with it right now. Can’t get enough? Check out more interviews at www.wtf.health

They just raised another $10M and you should find out why….

I met up with Kyruus co-founder and chief product officer Julie Yoo at #HIMSS18 to hear about the #AI magic behind their ‘intelligent routing engine.’ Apparently, it does such an incredible job driving business into health systems by better matching patients to docs that some more funding is in order to help them expand!

So, where does Kyruus fit into the ‘big picture’ of health’s ‘big data’ movement? Julie’s beat on how AI implementation in healthcare is going gives you a pretty good idea.

One of the new faces – and mega tech companies – to be at #HIMSS18, I caught up with Uber Health’s head of strategy Lauren Steingold just after the launch of their HIPAA compliant ride share service for patients.

Lauren talks about the year-long approach Uber took to get into #healthtech, what they’re looking to do next, and her first impressions of HIMSS.

What advice does the tech company have for healthcare? HINT: uber’s ‘on-demand’ ethos extends to the way providers can sign up for their service. It’s a self-service sign-up (no cumbersome contract negotiations with procurement, whaaaat?) with next day implementation. The bar is set, Health Tech.

Why go to Health Datapalooza? Ask Bruce Greenstein, CTO of HHS

Health Datapalooza is coming up quick at the end of April, so I sat down with Bruce Greenstein, CTO of HHS about why all of THCB’s health tech friends should attend. Plus, we get into what’s happening with the open data movement and how Bruce’s past-life at Microsoft is going to shape how he and HHS work with those consumer tech companies that are pushing harder and harder into healthcare.

WTF Health | Blockchain God Ted Tanner of PokitDok

THCB is thrilled to help launch a new interview series from Jessica DaMassa. It’s called WTF Health – ‘What’s the Future’ Health. Jessica is bringing you all some honest conversations about the future of health and how we love to hate WTF is wrong with it right now. Check out her first set of interviews from #HIMSS18 at www.wtf.health or stay tuned as she trots them out here.

I’m leading off with one of my favorites, Ted Tanner, Blockchain GOD and CTO of PokitDok. Here’s why you should watch Ted talk blockchain:

  • Best Part: On what blockchain does NOT do… “it doesn’t make unicorns cough up $100 bills” (approx. 7 min)
  • Why we need to look at blockchain as an ‘enablement platform’ that augments, not ‘rips and replaces’
  • Predictions for the future of blockchain as tech giants move in
  • How blockchain will be the next evolution of enterprise computing
