43: Solving a Waitlist of Problems
Meet Aditya Bansod:
Aditya Bansod is the Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of Luma Health. Prior to Luma Health, he was the Vice President of Product at Remind and the Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Sencha, Inc. Previously, he was a Principle Product Manager at Adobe Systems as well as a Lead Program Manager at Microsoft. Aditya received a Bachelor’s of Cognitive Science from the University of California San Diego.
Aditya is driven to build software that positively impacts people’s lives. Improving healthcare access through better waitlists is only the start for Luma Health.
- The Founding Team. Luma Health has three co-founders that complement each other’s experiences and background. Their CMO is a practicing radiologist, providing a clinical perspective, and the CEO has a background in sales and marketing. With his background in product management, Aditya specializes in product engineering and implementation.
- Patient Success Above All. Health systems want patient engagement, but Aditya is focused on patient success. Success in patient outcomes is a more challenging metric to achieve, and is longer-term, but that is what patients ultimately value.
- Funding During a Downturn. In boom times, innovation and digital transformation teams have more sway. During downturns, the bar is a little higher and CFOs are the new target audience when finding partnerships. This may require founders to be more ROI-focused, vision-oriented, and disciplined.
This episode is hosted by Tarun Kapoor, M.D. He is a member of the Advisory Council for Day Zero and is Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Transformation Officer at Virtua Health.
