Clockwise from top left: Philip Meer, Bill Kampine and Ed Richardson
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 Philip Meer, Bill Kampine and Ed Richardson.
In the following installment, I check in with Philip Meer, CEO of PatientKeeper, about physician burnout and what his company is doing to reduce administrative work for care providers. We also talk about the timing of Philip's appointment to CEO, and how it aligned with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, and what he learned from that experience.
In the following installment, I check in with Bill Kampine, co-founder and senior vice president of analytics and innovation at Healthcare Bluebook, to discuss the ways his company is creating better cost transparency in healthcare and why this has been such a challenge for the industry.
In the following installment, I check in with Ed Richardson, chairman and CEO of Richardson Electronics, about the company's success in the CT tube market and his views on the future of the medical equipment parts and service industry.
Back in April, Ed and I discussed the ways Richardson was dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and remaining productive as an essential business. He also shared his predictions for how the pandemic will shape the future of healthcare delivery, so I encourage you to watch that interview after this one.
We hope you enjoy the videos. Please tell us what you think, and let us know who you would like to see interviewed next!
