Looking forward to 2020

December 23, 2019

In my final blog for the year, I share my thoughts on what’s in store for digital health and digital transformation for the healthcare sector. As someone pointed out after reading my piece, the second law of thermodynamics prevails, which seems to be an accurate summary (I’ll be honest; I had to look it up again, even though I studied it as part of my Chemical Engineering coursework).

What do baseball batting averages have to do with care quality? For the answer, tune in to our final podcast for the year with Graham Gardner, Co-Founder and CEO of Kyruus, a digital health company that applies Moneyball tactics to improve patient access and quality of care.

In this final edition of our weekly newsletter for the year, we have curated my most read blogs and most downloaded podcast episodes of the year. Scroll down to check these out.

We’ve had a pretty good year and I want to thank our clients, our advisors, and our podcast guests for all their support and time during the year. Finally, I want to thank the Damo Consulting team who work hard every day to make our customers successful.

Oh, and did I mention I’m working on my second book? More to come in the new year.

To infinity and beyond. Happy holidays.
