S5: #044: Jamey Edwards on Telemedicine and Five Keys for Humanizing Healthcare

57 minutes

In this episode, we talk about telemedicine 3.0 and humanizing healthcare. We spoke with Jamey Edwards, the CEO and founder of Cloudbreak, a company delivering telemedicine solutions to hospitals across the US. Cloudbreak provides more than one million minutes of telemedicine consultation through over 75,000 encounters each month. Cloudbreak invests heavily in creating engaging experiences through their products, and it is clearly working. Their solutions are being used in over 700 hospitals, including two of the top 20 hospitals in the US (Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles, #11, and NYU Langone Medical Center, #19). To top it off, they are achieving 50% annual growth and have just joined Startup Health as a portfolio company.

Jamey is very concerned about physician burnout and the clinicians working at the coal face of healthcare delivery. As a result, he is highly focused on improving the healthcare environment for the people that work in it. In our discussion, Jamey shares how their work has been shaped through their collaboration with Nick Adkins (@nickisnpdx) and the #pinksocks movement, and the role of the Peter Diamandis and his Abundance 360 program had in framing Cloudbreak's approach. Jamey also shares his perspective on humanizing healthcare, and he tells us the 5 things that, in his view, are key to humanizing healthcare.
