About our Guest:
Dr. Kim Gandy is a physician, scientist, and entrepreneur with a deep-seated belief in the potential of digital health solutions for optimizing health outcomes. She launched Play-it Health (PIH) in the health adherence engagement space, aiming to utilize digital health technologies to improve adherence, one of the elements known to have the most potential for impact in value-based medicine. Though value-based care never reached significant adoption in the health marketplace, remote patient monitoring or the ability to monitor patient biometrics outside of the clinical setting did. Since RPM was a part of the PIH platform from the beginning, Play-it Health has found itself poised with an RPM solution embedded in a platform with some of the highest adherence rates in the industry.
Over the last year, PIH has sought to use its platform, Plan-it Med, to improve community efforts to combat the Coronavirus. Dr. Gandy is not only a former pediatric cardiac and transplant surgeon, she is a scientist, having obtained her Ph.D. from Stanford and having run international committees in translational research. As such, she was imminently qualified to be able to mold the PiH platform to meet community needs in a pandemic.
