Here are 3 things that stood out as Shanil Ebrahim gave us an epidemiologist’s perspective on healthcare:

  • Sometimes, implementing new technology actually adds to the burden of employees. For example, electronic medical health records and other requirements have increased the documentation burden on many practitioners.
  • Quality healthcare means providing better and more effective care in an accessible manner.
