In this episode, we are privileged to host Sanjeev Agrawal, President and CEO at LeanTaas. This is a healthcare software company that increases patient access to medical care. When Stefano first met Sanjeev at the first DocSF Conference, the company was just a start-up. Today, the company has grown into an established and well-funded company that is changing how we manage hospitals across the country.
Sanjeev recounts his healthcare entrepreneurial journal, which began when his team successfully solved a Stanford Cancer Institute problem. He discusses machine learning applications and gives excellent real-world examples of problems where machine learning can be applied. We also tackled the data they are looking for to solve problems and where machine learning is going in the future.
This conversation is fascinating, not just on how to solve complex healthcare problems utilizing accurate data, because there’s more to it than that, so make sure to tune in!
