How medical practices can use digital transformation to provide better care

Aug. 8, 2022 / By Travis Bias, DO, MPH, FAAFP

Can you share the most interesting or most exciting story that has happened to you since you began at your company? 

One of my favorite things to do is to bring people together to form a strong team or to tell a story. And one of my proudest professional achievements was completing a diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, completed over three months in 2014 in Tanzania and Uganda. I made some close friends during this course, and just a few months ago I got to interview three of them — all doctors based in Sydney — as part of a Talking HealthTech Autumn Summit panel. So, my personal world and my professional world — strengthening health systems through the use of technology — came together to highlight opportunity areas for the Australian health care system. 

It has been said that our mistakes can be our greatest teachers. Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting? Then, can you tell us what lesson you learned from that?
