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.
