by | Mar 15, 2021 | Podcast

Today’s Guest

Welcome back to another episode of the We Live to Build podcast.
Technology and Covid-19 are forcing Healthcare to change at a rapid pace.
From the rise of wearables to tele-health and beyond, healthcare tech is shaping up to be a very interesting industry in the next few years.
Our guest today is Blair Hirst, a biomedical engineer by trade, the founder of Digital Health Review, a platform for people to educate themselves about what’s going on in the world of healthcare including products, services, and more.
She’s also the Senior Engagement Manager at Acorn AI Labs, a company focused on medical data solutions.
In this conversation, we talked a lot about healthcare, and somehow we ended up mentioning the role government, politics, lobby groups, insurance companies, and big pharma affect how it all works.

Let’s give a warm welcome to Blair!

We talk about:
  • What is the current state of the health tech industry?

  • How has COVID-19 impacted health tech?

  • Should healthcare be for profit or non-profit?

  • What are the pros and cons of getting into the industry right now?

  • What are some barriers to entry?

  • What do you think are the major shifts occurring in the digital health industry as it concerns consumer usage?

  • What are some interesting companies that launched in the last 2 years?

  • What are some types of products and services coming up soon?

  • What is going to define the growth of technology adoption in healthcare?

  • What trends do you see emerging in the next 5-10 years?

And remember, Entrepreneurship is a Marathon, not a Sprint, so take care of yourself every day, so that you can live and love, and have the energy and the passion to run your business, and to invest in your team, and to find a way to appreciate those moments of happiness.
