S4: #035: John Pugh on Redefining the Rules of Healthcare

49 minutes

In this episode I spoke with John Pugh. John is the Health and Life Science Team Leader for Accenture.  He describes himself as 100% digital innovator and entirely committed to transforming the Life Science and healthcare industry.  We talk about redefining the rules of healthcare, and what he and his colleagues are working on in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Analytics, Blockchain, Innovation and more.  We dive into the program he’s heading called the HealthTech Innovation Challenge and how startups and corporations can participate and benefit.  We also talk about some of the information and resources that Accenture has produced and made available to businesses and organizations of all sizes.

John started his career in the music business and got involved in the tech scene when he joined a startup during the first tech boom. He's here to share his perspective on collaboration, innovation and how creativity can thrive in a constrained and regulated environment. He also shares some insights into the HealthTech Innovation Challenge and how it can help startups and corporates shape the future of health through collaboration.
