On this episode, I’m joined by health tech investor, digital health innovator, and health systems operator, Sarah Sossong.

There are many barriers to the adoption of innovation, and many of them can be mitigated by laying the right groundwork, and taking the right steps. Leadership buy-in, leveraging internal champions, and starting with a problem not a technology are some of the ways you can ensure the success of your innovation. Whatever you do, think long-term. Don’t just think about what you’re doing right now, think about the parts of the innovation that are the most scalable beyond the present moment or the pilot phase.
