In this week’s episode, Sheila Phicil, Director of Innovation at Boston Medical Center’s Health Equity Accelerator, joins me to discuss how physicians and the entire healthcare ecosystem are embracing innovation in patient care and beyond. Sheila shares with me her mission to be a transformative leader who accelerates change and innovation and makes a real difference in healthcare.
Tune in to this episode to learn how Boston Medical Center is innovating in spaces you wouldn’t typically associate with healthcare. For example, the hospital grows its own food in a rooftop garden, and also offers classes that teach people how to cook food that will keep them healthy. I learn more about this proactive approach, which is not only about curing people of what ails them, but also proactively looking after them when they leave the hospital.
