After listening to all the great lessons and experiences, we couldn’t help but formulate some questions of our own. We followed up with Patrick to pick his brain a little more about U.S. healthcare and the role Net Health will have in its reshaping.
- Alan opens with a set of dire statistics about US healthcare. NH can’t solve them all but, plays a role in reshaping healthcare. How do we contribute? Our goal is to reunite caregivers with their calling. For a software company, this means removing barriers that caregivers face like duplication of effort, lack of integration, and time wasted on the support of non-care related tasks, such as digital marketing, predictive analytic computation, and modern administrivia.
- Alan does make a great point about the rise of outpatient care throughout the healthcare system. At 2:30, he says “it [outpatient] will ultimately disrupt the way that we get the care we need.” Do you (does Net Health) relate to the word ‘disrupt’? Yes, that word resonates but should be redefined. For example, a welcome surprise is still a disruption. Outpatient care, moving all the way from hospital to home, is clearly an effective way to support the disruption that is needed. Innovations we develop to help caregivers spend more time with patients and less time on administrivia should be a welcome surprise. By helping to provide the right information at the right time, benchmarked with facts, we can save time and, in some cases, lives.
- Alan was ranked by Rolling Stone as one of the 100 people most likely to change America. How did it feel to be selected? It was fun to connect with Alan and co-host Lynn Banaszak. They focus on innovative ideas, people, and companies that are solving problems at scale and helping to redefine the future. We work and dream about these kinds of topics each day, so it felt like a great fit.
