Tech Vitals – An SSR Podcast
As healthcare is changing, it’s important for technology and care delivery to align. How does one blend the built environment with fundamental human interaction needs? Tech Vitals is a discussion of that question. Hosted by Dr. Debbie Gregory and Zac Hillyard, this podcast explores how to mix the human interaction perspective and the technical perspective to build the “future roadmap” for health.
