Today I’m launching a new podcast series….

Welcome to Dissecting Digital Health! :-)

I’ve been looking for a way to highlight the fabulous people across the planet who dedicate their lives to improving healthcare through health informatics and digital health and this podcast series was born to help achieve that goal.

I talk to people I’ve known for years and people I meet 5 minutes before we record the podcast. I speak to a diverse group of people; from legends of the health informatics world, to people you might never have heard of; clinicians, researchers, captains of industry, students, technologists, and even a theoretical physicist or two. We talk about their career journeys, what motivates and drives them, what they are working on now and the legacy they want to leave behind.

You will find a common thread amongst this diverse cornucopia is passion. Dissecting Digital Health guests are nothing if not passionate advocates for a better healthcare future enabled by data and technology, and getting high quality information into the hands of patients and clinicians to improve health outcomes. They know we can, and must, do better and they’re dedicating their lives to that objective.

You will find a ‘back-catalogue’ published in relatively quick succession, and following that we plan to publish weekly.

This is going to be great fun and I know you’ll enjoy listening along. I’m keen to get your feedback so please email me at dissectingdigitalhealth@gmail.com with your ideas and suggestions.

The below list of DDH episodes will be added to in chronological order of publication each time we have a new episode out in the podcast-verse.

Links to the transcripts are available below.
