1268: Wheel - The Technology Changing How Healthcare Works
Wheel is leveraging technology to change the way healthcare works with quality virtual care at scale. I wanted to learn more about how they empower clinicians on the front lines of patient care in telehealth and move healthcare forward as a result.
Wheel CTO Chris Norris once said that his generation's best minds are thinking about how to make people click ads. That sucks! It was at that moment that I realized he was the perfect guest for the Tech Talks Daily Podcast. I invited him to share his vision for the future and how they are helping clinicians and the industry deliver better care for all.
Norris has a rare track-record of taking four startups in a row to IPO, $150m+/unicorn acquisitions. His success with the demands of both startups and enterprises is a result of his focus on the customer, and a consistent drive for entrepreneurial innovation. He has also built businesses and products from the ground-up and scaled teams, technology, and process 10-100x.
The pragmatic decision-maker takes pride in being an authentic servant leader who puts my people first and creates 'no politics, no BS' cultures. We discuss how the medical industry is behind on technology innovation-which ultimately burdens the clinician and the ways Wheel is taking a unique approach to telehealth by providing a platform that can more effectively scale services while empowering clinicians.
We also talk about the power of data and analytics to reveal virtual care patterns and insights that could exponentially improve how healthcare is delivered. For startup founders listening, we explore taking startups through rapid growth phases by maintaining a fast pace of progress while cultivating a transparent culture.
Although this is a daily tech podcast, we also talk about the importance of empowering teams to focus on the experience of their end-users, clinicians, and clients to build the best possible healthcare solutions.
