We’ve all heard the saying, “Two heads are better than one,” and healthcare, with all its associated challenges and variety of caregivers, provides a perfect illustration of its validity.
The team at Providence recently launched the podcast, “Think Tank,” which pairs an expert from Providence with a non-healthcare leader in the tech field to share expertise and brainstorm solutions to the problems their industries face regularly. Each episode features a candid discussion between two experts that focuses on practical, thoughtful tactics and strategies that address the barriers to providing and receiving care.
Catch up on the first three episodes to hear the magic happen.
