Memora Health and NorthShore Edward-Elmhurst Health Venture Capital - Part 1

In the past few years, as care more and more moved outside the traditional walls of the hospital, “the one thing that was abundantly clear was that there really was no good underlying technology or infrastructure to manage and support patients in that way.” So observed Manav Sevak, one of the venture entrepreneurs on today’s program. He has joined forces with our other featured guest, Melissa Cohen of Northshore Edward-Elmhurst, to address, in her words, “the importance of digital health and how it could impact the stakeholders across the entire healthcare ecosystem.” Their partnership to support the move of care to the home is the focus of this podcast episode.
