What drives change in a well-established industry?
Disruptive innovation. Think Airbnb, Robinhood, or Chime. These companies are not just transforming their industries, they are creating a new market and their own value network.
Our CEO, Pelu Tran, was recently interviewed by Authority Magazine as part of their Meet the Disruptors series. In his interview, Pelu shares his thoughts on shaking up the healthcare industry.
Authority Magazine interview with Fotis Georgiadis and Pelu Tran
As part of our series about business leaders who are shaking things up in their industry, I had the pleasure of interviewing Pelu Tran.
Pelu is a serial healthcare entrepreneur who studied both medicine and engineering at Stanford University and was four months away from receiving his MD when he dropped out to start his first company, Augmedix. Pelu led the product and commercial teams, growing the company to over 1,000 employees in five countries and $20M in annual revenue from over half of the largest health systems in the US.
After watching his uncle pass away from a preventable medical error in 2018, Pelu founded Ferrum Health, an enterprise AI deployment platform with the mission of improving patient outcomes by democratizing health systems’ access to the most innovative and impactful clinical AI technologies from around the world.
Today, more than 500,000 unique patient records have been clearly analyzed via the Ferrum platform. Pelu is a Technology Pioneer and expert contributor for the World Economic Forum, a Fellow of the UN World Summit on Innovation, and a member of Forbes’ Healthcare 30 under 30, and more. He also guest lectures at UC Berkeley, UCSF, and Stanford on healthcare leadership and innovation. Pelu would be a valuable contributor to this series because he’s has built his company on disrupting the status quo of healthcare technology.
