Ep.23: There's Product Management in My Medicine: Interview with a (Real) Doctor

I’ve been looking for a doctor for some time to come on the podcast and talk about product problems in medicine. Stuff like - Why is innovation adoption so slow in medicine? How will AI change my experience at the hospital? Why can’t I schedule an appointment with my doctor online? What are the problems that product people can solve?

We’re joined by Mike, a Denver-area radiologist, who answers these questions, and brings to light other unexpected product problems that are just waiting to be solved.

Finally - how can tech work with medicine to solve problems that we’ve already solved in other industries?
