As the chief evangelist and co-founder of Aloha Health, my podcast guest Mandi Bishop is disrupting healthcare by making life actionable, helping healthcare systems make sense of the way invisible influences should shape personalized care plans, interventions, and engagements. She believes that patients must be partners in healthcare design and that there is no value-based care without recognizable value delivered to the very people healthcare exists to serve.
Prior to Aloha, Mandi led Dell Healthcare and Life Science’s Global Analytics Innovation and Consulting practice, driving solutions that touched the lives of over 100 million patients. In 2016, she was recognized as one of the “Most Powerful Women in Healthcare IT” by Health Data Management magazine. She was #1 on the crowdsourced #HIT100 list of top healthcare IT industry influencers, and #3 on Healthagen’s “Top 10 Healthcare Leaders to Follow on Twitter”. In 2015, she was included in Rock Health’s “State of Women in Healthcare” report as a “Role Model”.
She is @MandiBPro on Twitter, co-chair for nationwide HealthIMPACT Forum events, an advisory board member for the Society for Participatory Medicine and #STEMPrincess, a contributor to the American Journal of Accountable Care and Tincture, and co-host of the Managed Care podcast series.
That was the question posed by Rick Smith, Editor of the WRAL TechWire to some of the most innovative and visionary digital health companies in the Triangle. From individuals monitoring their daily steps via a wearable device to scientists gaining the ability to harness the power of big data on a massive scale, advances in mobile health are both exciting and a bit unnerving.
On September 27, 2016, WRAL TechWire invited senior executives of Axial Health, Valencell, Validic, MobileSmith, Medfusion and RelyMD the Executive Exchange to share their thoughts. During the second panel on data security and legal issues, we heard from executives from Parker Poe, MCNC, Wyrick Robbins and Duke Health.
I had the pleasure of live-Tweeting the program and also captured some audio from some of the speakers and attendees. Give a listen to the voice of The Future of Mobile Health.
Many physicians have discovered a passion for health technology, but not many have taken an 180-degree turn into the digital health field right out of residency. Jonathan O’Donnell did and has found his unique medical perspective to be an asset to the programs he has joined like Startup Weekend Health, iScribes and the design thinking workshop he co-lead with Katie Donohue McMillan. In our conversation, Jonathan and I discussed his medical school training at Duke University and how he caught the digital health bug. Listen to our conversation or catch the time stamps below.

Social Media Tip: Kenny Brooks – Use team LinkedIn profiles as a sales resource
If you’re not 100% thrilled about all the time you’ve been plugging away on social media, you are not alone. I hear practice managers and physician owners stressed out over details of social media & blog content.
Meet Dr. Tom Giannulli; Chief Medical Officer for Kareo and independent practice innovator. As both a physician and an entrepreneur, Dr. Giannulli is something of a modern-day Edison – creating, developing and testing digital health innovations in his own healthcare practice. As an independent practitioner, he offers a unique perspective and the capability to de real-time testing of the innovative ideas at Kareo.
During our interview, we talked about innovation, the needs of the small healthcare practice and, of course, social media. Listen to our conversation or drop in at the time stamps below:
