Earlier this year, we launched a new health care podcast: Life-Centered Health Care. A lot of health leaders and innovators talk about “disrupting” health care, but there isn’t widespread understanding of what that really means.

On the podcast, we tackle questions like, “What does disruptive innovation look like in the field?” and “How does one actually do it?”. In each episode, I discuss the application of disruptive innovation along with Christensen’s other theories and their potential to transform our health care ecosystem. 

In the inaugural episode, I’m joined by Gurjeet Singh, founder of Oma Fertility. We discuss what disruptive innovations are and aren’t, along with the disruptive potential of Oma’s business model. If you take a listen, please leave a review and let me know what you think.

Key takeaways:

  • Disruptive innovations are not breakthrough technologies that make good products better.
  • Instead, they make products and services more accessible and affordable, thereby making them available to a larger population.
  • Oma Fertility is bringing disruptive innovation to fertility care with a new type of fertility clinic. Its mission revolves around improving access, affordability, and outcomes of in vitro fertilization (IVF).

You can also access the podcast on any of the following platforms: AppleSpotifyAmazon Music, and iHeartRadio
