Dr. Benjamin Schwartz joins for this episode, orthopedic surgeon who specializes in joint replacement in Beverly, MA and is Chief Innovation Officer at Healent. He was named a Top Voice of LinkedIn with his thought-provoking commentary and interest in healthcare technology. Dr. Schwartz recently challenged big tech and we discuss his letter to Apple CEO, Tim Cook. Discussion topics include:
-Big tech turned eye to healthcare and ask why? Are they interested in making change or to tap into expansion in a growing market? How amazing would an Apple Hospital be for healthcare or for Apple to build their own EMR platform?
-He used downtime during early covid to his advantage at Healent as the Chief Innovation Officer. Healent offers virtual care delivery to patients with education, remotely monitoring patient outcomes and increasing efficiency
-Telehealth: Is it here to stay or does it slow down workflow with inefficiencies?
-Medical device listeners: We support you! Dr. Sigman and Dr. Schwartz discuss how they’ve met with industry through covid
