Driving Innovation from Within: The Power of Intrapreneurship in Healthcare
In this podcast episode Joy welcomes Karley Yoder (GM and Chief Digital Officer for ultrasound business at GE Health) and Vaishali Kamat (GM of New Ventures in the ultrasound digital organization at GE Health) live from the GE Healthcare booth at HIMSS to discuss the concept of intrapreneurship and the challenges of driving new ideas within a large company. They emphasize the importance of having a clear vision, building trust, and being humble, while also leveraging the power of cross-divisional collaboration and diversity to achieve success.
Joy also asks about the technology of ultrasound, which Kamat explains is a real-time diagnostic imaging modality that is cost-effective, portable, and non-radiation. They discuss its various applications, from obstetrics to cardiovascular systems, and its ability to provide immediate results at the point of care. Yoder then touches on the incorporation of AI into ultrasound technology and how it can help automate certain tasks and improve accuracy.
