Five Minutes in Healthcare is where I discuss current events with some of the industry's most influential leaders, as well as innovative thinkers who are working to meet the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.

Over the last week I have had the pleasure of speaking to Brian Robertson, Diana Hendel, Amy Dirks Stevens and Mark Tomaino.

In the following installment, I check in with Brian Robertson, CEO of VisiQuate, about his background in healthcare and how his company is working to bring more efficiency to revenue cycle management and support the hospital's bottom line.


In the following installment, I check in with Diana Hendel, former hospital CEO and author of 'Why Cope When You Can Heal?: How Healthcare Heroes of COVID-19 Can Recover from PTSD' about managing the current pandemic from an emotional standpoint and specific techniques for managing the day-to-day stress of the healthcare frontlines.


In the following installment, I check in with Amy Dirks Stevens, EVP at health transformation network AVIA, to discuss automation in healthcare and the many ways hospital processes can be streamlined for greater efficiency.


In the following installment, I check back in with Mark Tomaino, operating partner with Welsh Carson Anderson & Stowe, a private equity firm investing in healthcare and technology. Mark shares his deep insight into the industry in order to provide top level predictions about the future and how the COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the business of medicine.
