Regular listeners of the Black Swan podcast know that its focus is on the entire Canadian innovation ecosystem, from startups and enterprises to policy and pivots.

I recently moderated a panel at the Blockchain Revolution Global conference, an event in late October organized by the Blockchain Research Institute. The topic was Healthcare & Technology in a Pandemic World, and I spoke with Dr. Sarah Muttitt, the VP of Information & Technology & CIO of Sick Kids and UHN, and Mario Voltolina, the CTO of Canada Health Infoway.

We covered a range of topics centred upon running a healthcare system, including what remote healthcare and privacy looks like now and into the future.
