My guest is John Reites, an executive intrapreneur turned digital health entrepreneur. You may have seen him on stage talking about innovation as a digital health evangelist for a contract research organization.
John spent over 14 years leading global drug development and healthcare innovation at Quintiles where he also led internal startups as the head of digital health acceleration. Late last year he decided to make the jump from global giant and is now the Chief Product Officer and Partner at THREAD Research based in North Carolina.
