Healthcare Entrepreneur Myth Busting – Healthcare IT Today Podcast Episode 135

For the 135th episode of the Healthcare IT Today Podcast we are busting some myths about being a healthcare entrepreneur! First, we discuss what topics can be the hardest to accept for company founders who are new to healthcare. Then, we examine the corporate landscape with all of the recent layoffs and tight margins to see if this is a good time to start a new company. Next, we pass along advice to healthcare company founders. Lastly, we debate over what health IT companies we would start right now if we had to.

Here’s a preview of the topics and questions we discuss in this episode:

  • When you talk to company founders who are new to healthcare, what is the cold splash of water that is hardest for them to accept?
  • Is this a good time to start a new company in healthcare given all the layoffs and tight margins?
  • What advice would you give to a healthcare company founder?
  • If you were to start a health IT company right now, what would that be?

Now, without further ado, we’re excited to share with you the next episode of the Healthcare IT Today podcast.
