Shownotes

Welcome to Season 2 of the Medical Matrix Podcast! Your host Dr. Rosie Sendher and co-host Dr. Erica Fisk kickoff Season 2 with a discussion on health technology innovation. Joined by recurring guest and surgeon-scientist Dr. Fred Lam, we dive into how healthcare systems and financial models in the US and Canada impact innovation in medical technology, how medical technology research is actually funded, and what drives discovery and advances in this field. Is there a meaningful difference between these systems? Can we have more socialized systems without compromising innovation? The trio draw upon their own experiences in research and in clinical practice as they explore these topics and question how we can continue to invent, innovate, and solve medical problems through technology.
