Your innovation is exciting, world changing, elegantly designed - but can you pay the rent?
CABHI loves innovation, but the world doesn't have enough closets for all the great services and prototypes collecting dust because there wasn't a plan to pay for them.
Financial sustainability is not easy, but the good news is that there isn't only one road to achieving it. Join us as we engage our special guest, who has found herself in the unexpected role of bootstrapping a promising clinical service (and service model) from idea, to pilot, to program.
Dr. Joanne Ho is a geriatrician, clinical pharmacologist, and internist practicing at Grand River Hospital and St. Mary’s General Hospital in Kitchener, ON. She is an Assistant Professor, at McMaster University's Divisions of Geriatric Medicine & Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology. She is also a Schlegel Clinical Research Scientist at Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging. Most germane to her appearance on our podcast, she is the creator of Gerimedrisk, an interdisciplinary telemedicine service available to clinicians who need geriatric clinical pharmacology and psychiatry consultations.
Joanne joins our CoI crew to discuss how she's approached keeping Gerimedrisk's lights on as they develop, evaluate and grow their service.
