Startup Highlight: AVIA Innovator Network
In the quickly shifting tech landscape of health care today, many hospitals have a hard time selecting the best emerging tech to solve their issues. Many hospital CEOs simply get inundated with requests for pilots, meetings, and sales pitches with no end in sight. AVIA is looking to provide a smart path for hospitals to connect with curated sets of emerging technologies. I am a big believer in technology’s ability to improve care, but it is impossible to separate the signal from the noise for hospitals. Hopefully AVIA can help.

Quote of the Week:
“Having just returned from Japan, I have been struck by the number of obvious, often simple, low-cost ‘low-tech’ measures that societies can adopt to improve health and indeed overall quality of life. These measures compare markedly with the ‘high-tech’ digital healthcare world that is my usual professional environment, yet one that is often prone to carte-blanche enthusiasm for any technological innovation, particularly from the start-up scene.”
