During this episode I discuss innovation and virtual care with Dr. Leslie Saxon from the USC Keck School of Medicine. Keck has developed one of the first virtual care clinics and is a prime example of the benefits of digital health innovation.
Dr. Leslie Saxon has worked at a number of institutions besides USC, including UCLA and UCSF. She is an Interventional Cardiologist who specializes in the diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmia. Dr. Saxon also hosts the Body Computing Conference at USC, an event which focuses on innovation in digital health. Today, we discuss her work and how innovation in connectivity has improved her work as an Interventional Cardiologist.
