Host of Dr. Nick: The Incrementalist#TheIncrementalist

On this episode I talked to Lyle Berkowitz, MD (@DrLyleMD), CEO of Keycare (@KeyCareInc) a virtual care platform that connects to the existing infrastructure of health.

Episode NOW on Demand

Lyle has a long career in medicine and the intersection of business and technology working as a CMIO and clinician at Northwestern Medicine in Chicago and helping form one of the first innovation centers there.

We talk about the growth of these concepts and the emergence of many of these centers in healthcare and how they contribute. As Lyle says – every business including healthcare needs a disruption group:

“I think every company healthcare needs to have at least a small group, thinking about how to disrupt themselves because it’s a classic. If we don’t disrupt ourselves, someone else will.”

We agree – that incremental step is critical to survival unless you want to become a footnote in history like Blockbuster.

We discuss why the world needs another virtual care platform and what makes Keycard different with its flexible staffing model and partnering so that virtual care becomes local care.

Listen in to hear how they have managed to carve out a unique place that is bringing great feedback from Health Systems, Doctors, and patients.
