Ohad Arazi, Chief Strategy Officer, Vice President Provider Solutions, TELUS Health joins CATA TECHNOW for a video interview (8 minutes) with CATA CEO, John Reid on the subject of tackling innovation in healthcare. Mr Arazi explains why large organizations with a plethora of resources, in general, struggle with innovation, and then offers insights into what to do about it. While solutions may apply to tech, the formulae for the healthcare environment needs to consider its siloed nature and slow adaptation to change. He closes with comments on what TELUS has learned from recent new initiatives in the healthcare innovation space.
