In this episode of Medsider Radio, I sat down with myself. Well, sort of. This unique episode of Medsider flips the script, putting myself in the interviewee seat alongside my good friend, and temporary host, Brett Johnston. We discussed where founders should focus early on, guidance for taking the leap from your corporate position, and how to know which opportunities to pursue.If you're new to this show, here's a little more about me: I spent the last two decades in the medtech space, starting in medical device sales roles that ultimately led to startup leadership positions. During that time, I followed my curiosity through several career transitions while engaging in side projects along the way. I'm the founder of Medsider, Joovv, Crossfire Medical, and FastWave Medical. The latter two are spinouts from Big Sky Biomedical, a medtech accelerator that I also started with several other serial entrepreneurs.Before we jump into the conversation, I wanted to mention a few things:If you're into learning from proven medtech and healthtech leaders, and want to know when new content and interviews go live, head over to Medsider.com and sign up for our free newsletter. You'll get access to gated articles, and lots of other interesting healthcare content.Second, if you want even more inside info from proven experts, think about a Medsider premium membership.

The Salad With a Side of Fries podcast is hosted by Jenn Trepeck, discussing wellness and weight loss for real life, clearing up the myths, misinformation, bad science & marketing surrounding our nutrition knowledge and the food industry. Let's dive into wellness and weight loss for real life, including drinking, eating out, and skipping the grocery store. Today we are joined by Ted Kritsonis, who studies a variety of tech products. Ted is talking to us today about wearable health tech. In this episode, we cover the best wearable tech Ted has seen and discuss the pros and cons of some of the most popular smartwatches on the market. He dives into the accuracy of wearables and the best way for consumers to use the products. Ted also gives some great tips on choosing the best device for the purpose consumers seek to understand. Tune in today to learn how to utilize wearable tech for your lifestyle.IN THIS EPISODE:● [4:51] How did Ted get into the tech field from journalism? ● [7:28] Ted's favorite wearable tech products. ● [9:40] What's the best product for sleep tracking? ● [12:10] Ted discusses the pros and cons of the major smartwatches on the market. ● [16:10] What to consider when buying a smartwatch for yourself or others. ● [18:16] What should we know about WHOOP and Oura Smart Ring?● [25:02] Ted discusses the accuracy of wearable devices. ● [32:03] How does what you eat tie into wearables? ● [34:10] How do the devices get our heart rate from the top of our wrists? ● [36:52] How should we understand the context that devices share? ● [40:50] Why should you take the data to the doctor to determine the next steps if something seems “wrong” on the wearable?● [43:19] What does Ted think is next in this space?KEY TAKEAWAYS:● Different watches have different benefits, so when shopping for a smartwatch, determine what you want it to do and then shop for the best watch with those capabilities. For example, for runners, Garmin is the best. ● Accuracy is getting better, but the information isn't 100%. Use the information as insight instead of final information. Use it to compare how you've done across a span of time vs. reading too much into the information. If something seems off, take the data to a doctor to help you understand.● Your lifestyle habits, including sleep, nutrition, and physical activity, all tie into your health. The watch cannot give you all the answers, especially regarding the food you consume. QUOTES: “I always advise people to skip a year and go two or three years before you upgrade because then it'll feel like there's a bigger jump. There are times when a feature comes out that people can get excited about. Where I feel like there's confusion, is the expectation that one company, because it has a reputation for making good products, is really good at making this type of product, and I have to call out the apple watch for that. A lot of people look at the apple watch and think that's the best and end all of smartwatches when it is not. If you're a runner, I would recommend a Garmin over an apple watch any day.” Ted Kritsonis“Treat the numbers that you see as an insightful perspective. Thank it from, like ok, maybe I'm in the ballpark, and if that ballpark is dangerous, that could be a cause for concern. There's ECGs now on certain smartwatches; if there's something that seems off about the way your heart is working, the watch isn't going to tell you why, but go to your doctor and say, hey doc, I'm seeing this number on my device pretty consistently, what do you make of it?.” Ted Kritsonis“I do suspect we will see more, especially on mental health. Mental health tracking, brain scanning, things on the cognitive side of health as opposed to just the physical activity.” Ted KritsonisRESOURCES:Become A Member of Salad with a Side of FriesJenn's Free Menu PlanA Salad With a Side of FriesA Salad With a Side of Fries InstagramGUEST RESOURCES:Ted Kritsonis TwitterTed Kritsonis InstagramTednologic Podcast TwitterTednologic Podcast InstagramGUEST BIO:Ted Kritsonis has been a freelance journalist and photographer for 20 years, covering the tech industry.

Dr. Brian Fengler joins us on the show to talk about the latest in healthtech and innovating EHR technology to save lives in fewer clicks. Brian is the Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of EvidenceCare (recently named as an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Company), a company that provides a clinical decision support system (CDSS) that's uniquely integrated with the Electronic Health Record (EHR) to optimize clinician workflows.Dr. Fengler authored a treatment protocol for Pulmonary Embolisms when he was a resident at The University of Virginia. Despite being an expert in the field, he encountered a challenge while treating a 36-week pregnant patient suffering from a massive pulmonary embolism. Like 80% of healthcare decisions, he had to make a snap decision based on a quick internet search. Even though he was able to save both the mother and the unborn baby, he realized there was a gap in evidence-based information available to providers when they need it the most.Looking to fill the gap in 2014, Brian founded EvidenceCare with Co-Founder, Jim Jamieson, to create software that would help physicians make better decisions for their patients and hospital. Before EvidenceCare, he was an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at St Thomas Midtown and Rutherford Hospitals, one of the Founding Physicians and Managing Partners of Physicians Urgent Care, and a partner-owner of the Middle Tennessee Emergency Partners physician group. Dr. Fengler is now revolutionizing decision support at the bedside by providing what clinicians need to give better, evidence-based care.Today, Brian shares more about his journey starting a healthcare tech company, EHR innovation, optimizing clinical workflows, and how the healthcare system can and should be improved.Qualio website:https://www.qualio.com/ Previous episodes:https://www.qualio.com/from-lab-to-launch-podcast Apply to be on the show:https://forms.gle/uUH2YtCFxJHrVGeL8 Music by keldez

I couldn't think of a more uplifting story and episode to share with you before this Thanksgiving Holiday (and at an economically challenging time for many when it's easy to feel down) than this conversation with Sabrina Ruelle. I met Sabrina on a LinkedIn text message thread where she struck me with her thoughtful, well-articulated and insightful answers to my simple question: "What is the biggest challenge facing you in your career now?". She sounded way wiser than her years and I knew I wanted to talk to her. It turns out Sabrina's story is a unique one. She was placed in foster care at 12 years old when her mom had to battle addiction and she spent the next few years defying the expectation that she would underperform in the system. After high school, the only college that would accept her was a community college but she didn't let that deter her either. She ended up getting her master's degree at Boston University, and today, at 32 years old, is a Senior Director of Program Marketing and Management with a healthcare device startup. She's one of the best storytellers I've met and shows you what's possible when you choose career paths that follow your passion - healthcare for Sabrina, because of her mom's struggles. Tune in to hear Sabrina's inspirational story and to see what's possible when you are determined to put down roots, bloom and count your blessings in any environment.

Yannick nous explique comment les gérants choisissent ces thèmes, comment ils explorent les secteurs et investissent dans les sociétés. Enfin, Yannick nous explique pourquoi Mangrove a décidé de créer une fondation et les causes qu'ils soutiennent.

Extrait de l'épisode de Dimanche. Tombé dans le VC grâce à sa rencontre avec Fabrice Grinda, Yannick nous explique la manière dont il conçoit l'investissement en start-ups. Fondé par les faiseurs de l'opération Skype/eBay, Mangrove Capital gère plusieurs fonds investissant en start-ups dans des secteurs variés, en "early stage". Nous parlons des investissements et plus spécifiquement des stratégies de cessions de start-ups. Nous discutons spécifiquement de WIX et de son exit. Volontairement, à contre-courant, Mangrove mise sur des tendances années après années comme la "SilverTech" ou la "HealthTech". Yannick nous explique comment les gérants choisissent ces thèmes, comment ils explorent les secteurs et investissent dans les sociétés. Enfin, Yannick nous explique pourquoi Mangrove a décidé de créer une fondation et les causes qu'ils soutiennent.

Baby boomers have always been known for their innovative thinking and for being on the forefront of new technologies. Now, as they enter retirement, baby boomers are once again at the forefront of innovation, this time in the form of Metaverse, Blockchain, and Web 3.0 technologies. While these new technologies offer a world of potential, they also come with a unique set of challenges.One of the biggest challenges is figuring out how to use new technologies to their advantage. Many baby boomers grew up in a time when everything was done offline, so adapting to a world where everything is online can be difficult.They also worry about online safety. Also, baby boomers must navigate a complex financial landscape where it can be hard to determine if assets are worth acquiring. Finally, baby boomers must learn how to use these technologies in conjunction with each other.There are also numerous opportunities. As baby boomers age, the healthcare industry is preparing for an influx of patients. Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize how healthcare is delivered. It can be used to keep track of patient outcomes and medication regimens. This is very important for baby boomers, who are more likely to take multiple medications and visit multiple specialists. Blockchain technology POTENTIALLY would allow doctors and nurses to quickly find and fix problems in the care process. Blockchain could be used to verify the identities of patients and providers, ensuring that only authorized individuals have access to sensitive information.For baby boomers, dealing with healthcare costs and payments can be a real hassle. You're on a fixed income, and every time you go to the doctor or get a prescription, it feels like there's another bill to pay. Fortunately, blockchain technology is beginning to change all that. With blockchain, payments can be made more efficiently and securely, without all the paperwork and hassle.These technologies offer a level of security and transparency that is incredibly important for older adults who are handling their finances for the first time. With blockchain, baby boomers can track their money and make sure that they are getting the best deals possible. And with tokens, they can access a wide range of financial services that can help them to manage their money more effectively. As a result, blockchain and tokens are becoming increasingly popular with baby boomers who want to take control of their financial future.By harnessing the power of blockchain, we can ensure that baby boomers receive the best possible care.----------Bio:Joining me today is Dr. Alex Cahana, MD, a physician with over 25 years of clinical experience.
