Here’s the episode:

One way in which the healthcare industry is unique is that it touches everyone. We all–at various points in our lives–interact with various providers of health care. But we’re at a very interesting place in the evolution of that industry. On one hand, we have many amazing developments happening every day. But we also face many challenges. Forrest Faison is a retired vice admiral in the United States Navy who served as an officer in the medical corps, culminating as the United States Navy’s 38th Surgeon General. Since retiring from the Navy, he has served as the senior vice president for research and innovation and chief healthcare strategy officer at Cleveland State University. He truly has a unique set of top-level experiences as a healthcare and medical emergency response leader, and he joined us to talk about the future of health care and much more. We discussed: 

  • Major trends in the future of health care

  • Managing health emergencies at a large scale

  • Lessons learned from being the 38th surgeon general of the U.S. Navy
