I lived in a hospital until I was five years old. Catheters, scalpels, doctors, and pain were all normal to me. To play with me, my little sister would have to wear a mask because my immune system was compromised from rounds of chemotherapy.
I’m 100% grateful for the experience, and the physical scars surgeries have left me, because it planted a passion for healthcare inside of me. A seed that would’ve never flourished had it not been for what I went through.
To me the hospital was never a scary place, it was the place where you could find angels in human form.
If it weren’t for technology and the incredible team of specialists on my paediatric case, I would have died, and I was very aware of that even as a child. That said, I always knew that my destiny would have something to do with physicians, as they are the ones who saved my life.
And naturally, it has happened that way.
In the past 6 months, I have built incredible relationships with innovators, startups and physicians who are disrupting healthcare in ways that will benefit millions of people worldwide.
Why do healthcare disruptors matters so much?
We have nothing without our health. Healthcare startups, companies, and individual innovators do what they can to increase quality of life.
I have chosen to feature 3 of the most impactful healthcare brands I have come into contact with of recent will provide a short explanation into how each is innovating within their own sector:
What I keep on discovering is that most everyone in healthcare, cares. They care about patient compliance, patient care, innovation and making the healthcare sphere more efficient and valuable to better serve the ultimate customer, patients.
One individual example of someone who cares is Joy McAdams, who I had breakfast with just this morning. Joy is a strategic physician relations manager and plays a vital role in a prescription assistance program, and in just our breakfast conversation taught me so much about the importance of physician-physician relationships.
Remember, a healthcare setting is where many of us were born and where many of us will take our final breath…
