Punit has an interesting background and journey to this point and his perspective on the next big company we have yet to see is on point. As he says

none of the existing companies are even close to scratching the surface. The platform companies of our generation may do a little bit of healthcare, but it’s not primary healthcare businesses

So what should we be looking for and where might this innovation come from – listen in to find out.

We talk about voice or speech recognition in healthcare and revive a quote for me going back many years (2005)

Speech Recognition has been 2 years away for the last 10 years and its still 2 years away

We both agree it is not and there has been some incredible progress but the current excitement around “Ambient” tools is not quite as straightforward as it seems and his thoughts are highly relevant to anyone seeking to disrupt healthcare.

Listen in to hear Punit’s top 5 ways in which we will bring about change in healthcare – as he says it is not easy, but it is possible.
