S2: #014: Neil Jordan on Microsoft Digital Health Transformation

Microsoft isn’t known as a healthcare company, but when it comes to technology infrastructure - there is arguably no technology company with a greater presence across the health continuum than they do. Software pioneers Bill Gates and Paul Allen founded Microsoft in 1975, and the company has delivered powerhouse platforms that have revolutionized industries across a broad spectrum. Microsoft is empowering people and organizations to improve healthcare, and they are making an impact.

 

 

Microsoft's high profile acquisition of LinkedIn in June 2016, overshadows other important acquisitions and announcements that hold potential for a big impact on the health community. These include their 2011 acquisition of Skype, and their 2015 announcement of the Hololens - the first fully self-contained, holographic computer. These technologies are now a part of the Microsoft platform which enables entirely new ways of interacting with others and the world around us. In fact, if you haven’t seen how the Hololens can be used in healthcare yet, jump down the page and take a look what the developers at Case Western University are doing to use Hololens in the holographic anatomy program. It’s truly amazing.

 

My guest today is Neil Jordan. Neil is the Worldwide General Manager for the Health Industry for Microsoft. In this role, Neil acts as the chief strategist for the organization’s health initiatives worldwide. He’s responsible for defining and articulating the Microsoft vision for the future of healthcare, and, importantly, how Microsoft's products, technologies and partner solutions are working to make it a reality.

 

Neil and I spoke about Microsoft’s programs such as Biz Spark and the Imagine Cup, and how they are helping innovators around the world to get access to leading technologies and services. We also spoke about the key pillars of Microsoft’s Health Transformation strategy, and the importance Microsoft is placing on creating exceptional experiences in all aspects of the user journey.
