This episode of the Digital Health Community podcast by Persimmon features John Hsu, a practicing physician turned serial entrepreneur.
As the CEO/Founder of iPill – a digital health hardware innovation that works in improving prescription adherence and safety by reducing opioid diversion and abuse–John talks about opioids and how they can be used to control the drug epidemic we are currently facing in the US.
John dives deep into the effects of government policies on opioid usage and how the usage of telehealth and connected care can save thousands of lives of OUD (opioid use disorder) patients. He also talks about how drug abuse in inmates, which is a common prevalence, can be drastically reduced to not only save countless lives but reduce crime rates and make a healthier society in the long run.
