As most of you have probably seen, I’ve been spending a lot of time interviewing healthcare IT professionals and posting those interviews to the Healthcare Scene YouTube channel. Often I think that there’s no better way to tell a story than to hear it from the people behind the story. Plus, I love trying to suck pieces of insight and wisdom out of someone who knows a lot more about a subject than me.

While my Healthcare Scene videos have focused on various health IT topics, I’m excited to also be doing a number of video interviews in a new series we’re calling Healthcare Entrepreneurs. I’m lucky to have Melissa McCool co-hosting the Healthcare Entrepreneurs chat with me and we’ve already been lucky enough to have a group of amazing entrepreneurs share insights and perspectives on entrepreneurship and healthcare.

A great example of this was our interview with Carissa Reiniger on The Challenge of “Focus” for Healthcare Entrepreneurs. Turns out that these lessons applied well to entrepreneurs from every industry and even apply well to those working for a corporation. It seems that Focus is a universal challenge. Carissa offered some great insights into how to work on this challenge.

2016 March - Telemedicine and Healthcare Entrepreneurship-blog

If you want to watch our next episode of Healthcare Entrepreneurs, you can join us live on Wednesday, March 30, 2016 at 7 PM ET (4 PM PT). We’ll be talking with Jamey Edwards, CEO of CloudBreak Health, about Telemedicine and Healthcare entrepreneurship.

We know that entrepreneurship in general is hard and entrepreneurship in healthcare has added idiosyncrasies that can make it even more of a challenge. Hopefully Healthcare Entrepreneurs can shed some light on these challenges, talk about things that can help healthcare entrepreneurs, and create a community of healthcare entrepreneurs who can help each other.
