Health systems often have to decide whether to invest in building new products and services or to look outside to partner. At Sutter Health, the Design & Innovation team does both. Located in the epicenter of Silicon Valley, it partners with cutting-edge organizations to fast-track, test, and scale solutions that enhance its internal human-centered design & build capabilities.
While awareness about diversity has grown, the healthcare industry has moved at a glacial pace to bridge the gap. To help turn awareness into action, senior leaders from Lyft Healthcare, Rock Health, Sutter Health and Dignity Health had a conversation to provide actionable steps that individuals at all levels can take to immediately address and diminish the diversity gap in the workplace.
Ali Diab has spent the past five years building Rock Health portfolio company Collective Health—a cloud-based, integrated health benefits platform that enables self-insured employers to get more out of their healthcare investment while taking better care of their people. With Ali at the helm, Collective has not only helped employers and their people dramatically drive healthcare costs down—it’s also kept the value of diversity at the forefront, closing the gender wage gap along the way.
Rock Health portfolio company Evidation Health is a new kind of health and measurement company that provides technology and guidance to understand how everyday behavior and health interact and measure how behaviors outside the doctor’s office or hospital impact health outcomes. Evidation’s Chief Data Scientist, Luca Foschini, sat down with us to provide insight into the current state of digital biomarkers and how their team leverages both deep data science expertise and healthcare knowledge.
