Healthcare’s Digital Future

Healthcare’s Digital Future

Tired of telling your health care history over and over again to providers? Jessica Lunshof, a former nurse and caregiver found herself in this cycle that wasted time and placed an emotional burden on her and her family. 

She joins the podcast to share how she took this challenge and developed a digital solution - TAMVOES - to compile a patient’s health care data into one location. Dr. Bob and Terry discuss how these digital services are on the rise to make the healthcare system easier to navigate for the chronic disease community. 

And Kate speaks with Tharaniya, an advocate on a mission to raise awareness of the importance of health literacy. Plus, patient correspondent Jemela Williams underscores the critical need for accessible mental health services.
