My interviews with Lai Nam Hai and Michael O'Boyle

Five Minutes in Healthcare is where I discuss current events with some of the industry's most influential leaders, as well as innovative thinkers who are working to meet the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.

Over the last week I have had the pleasure of speaking to Lai Nam Hai and Michael O'Boyle.

In this installment, I check in with Lai Nam Hai, the founder and CEO of Wakamono, a company researching and developing bionanotechnology. We (with the help of Lai Nam Hai's translator, Sean) discuss the company's facemask designed to kill the COVID-19 virus before it reaches the wearer, how it became involved in facemask manufacturing, and the role of the facemask in the aftermath of the pandemic.

In this installment, I check in with Michael O'Boyle, CEO of abeo, a company that provides revenue cycle, advisory and practice management services for anesthesiology practices. We discuss the impact of COVID-19 on anesthesiology, how abeo has helped anesthesiologists sustain billing and revenue cycle workflows, and what is being done to help anesthesiologists resume their work.

We hope you enjoy the videos. Please tell us what you think, and let us know who you would like to see interviewed next!
