On this episode I talked to James Mault, MD, CEO of BioIntelliSense (@BioIntelliSense), who started out as a Cardiopulmonary technician and found his path and career by way of a mentor, Bob Bartlett with the father of ECMO to become a Cardiothoracic surgeon. His early experiences drove his desire for more complete monitoring, closer to the experience he had in the Operating room with constant flow of patient data that drove decision making based on this wealth of data, but something that was lacking in the home care setting. An early pioneer in cloud based electronic health management and storage but ultimately bringing everything together to create innovation in the remote patient monitoring (RPM) where with BioIntellisense he has expanded the world of wearables and in home monitoring with medical grade sensors.
