On this episode I spoke to Michael Robinson (@Robinsonhealth), Vice President Healthcare North America for VMWare. Michael has an interesting international background that provides additional perspectives and insights on how we bring innovation to healthcare and democratize access. As he puts it

Technology is the true democratizer of access to healthcare

We discuss the innovation that is taking place and the positive changes that come from “Technology for Good” that is helping drive improved engagement with all the communities involved in healthcare from patients, their families all the way through to technology providers and innovators to the clinicians and the care givers in the systems.

Listen in as we discuss the change from cloud averse healthcare organizations to the wave of adoption and enablement coming from this and the importance of building in “intrinsic Security” that you can’t just bolt on afterwards as an afterthought.
