In this episode, we talk to Steven S. Charlap, MD. Steven is a trained surgeon and the CEO of Soap Health, which is building a conversational, AI-powered patient and physician facing interface. Previously, Steven was the CEO of HealthDrive Corporation, the largest U.S. provider of medical and dental services to extended care facilities.

In this podcast, we focus on health data, new data generated by wearables, direct-to-consumer genome testing, and how each can generate value on different levels (personal insights, utility for physicians, health-driven incentives, and behavior adjustments). The discussion touches on the limitations of new devices, incentivization, the need for a holistic understanding of data and the context in which data finds itself, and deep focus on subjects, be they patients or consumers.

The “Liberty. Equality. Data.” podcast series aims to foster discussions about the different kinds of value that individuals can get from their personal data. We invite industry leaders and pioneers to talk about recent developments in different industries, opportunities made possible by user-held data, and the implications of an open data market.

We hope that the “Liberty. Equality. Data.” podcast series sheds more light on the new opportunities made possible by user-held data, and that individuals, developers, and everyone in our general audience will be inspired to explore new use-cases for applications built on top of user-held data.

You can find it on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and SoundCloud.
