What challenges or gaps in care are you focused on?
I believe that AI GPT discoveries will upend current medical practices for the entire healthcare ecosystem. I am focused on contemporary tech like this and distributed ledgers that will transform the future of healthcare work. But with all this tech, innovation is still human business and that is my focus – powering the inner forces that creat spellbinding outcomes.
What initiatives are you currently spearheading to improve health?
I focus on two areas. Innovation tools are abundant but what is missing is the human insight that awakens innovative action within institutions. we have a shortage of innovators with internal fortitude to see the future and build to it
What necessary collaborations/partnerships have you established within and/or outside of your organization in developing your initiatives?
I’m starting a company as Chairman assembling others who will be living examples of such innovation capacity. I’m also working with New Zealand healthcare startups, and government, to bring new ideas and energy into this nation as an Edmund Hillary Fellow.
What is your measurement criteria for success/or current measurable improvements have you realized from the initiative?
First my theory of inspired values based innovation has resulted in a book soon to be published, startups have used this model to inspire their approach. Second my company uses these principles to help transform the backplane of healthcare transactions with contemporary technology. Third, New Zealand is attempting to be the innovation hub for healthcare in the next era. The results will follow.
What gives you hope for the future in health care?
I’m uncomfortable with the status quo. It has served us in the past but will not serve us going forward. Leadership must engage and realize that to stand still under the roof of the status quo will submerge the future. My hope comes from those who take the personal risk pulled by ideas and innovations that will transform society.
