Before each Functional Forum, we will be recording a mini “TED-style event” where we will record 15 five-minute talks to be shared with our practitioner community.
If you have been following the Forum you know about MBODY360, an app that creates a new level of engagement between patient and practitioner. In this episode you will hear from Kari Thorstenen, the creator of the app, and Dr. Vincent Pedre, Functional Medicine physician and digital innovator.
When we started this “Future of Patient Compliance” series, marrying the shift from compliance to empowerment with the technological tools to accelerate it, Kyle Braatz, the CEO of Healthwave was our first guest on the first episode. A year later, Healthwave has undergone a transformation to Fullscript.com.
If there is one conference that has charted the rise of the Functional Forum and the Evolution of Medicine it is the Integrative Health Symposium, the biggest integrative and functional medicine conference on the East Coast, held each February in New York. For our May episode we bring you the best content from the conference.
This week I speak to, celebrity nutritionist and NY Times best selling author, JJ Virgin. She, also, organizes The Mindshare Summit where she brings health entrepreneurs together into one room. In this podcast, she speaks to the importance of collaboration versus competition and how healthcare providers can start collaborating and leave the competition model behind.
