Andrea Van Hook: An Assistive Technology Executive’s Perspective on Healthcare

Andrea is the Executive Director of RESNA (Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America.) RESNA is an association for assistive technology professionals. A member of Generation X, Andrea Van Hook lives in Washington DC, where RESNA is headquartered. Here are 3 things that stood out as Andrea Van Hook from RESNA shared an assistive technology executive’s perspective on healthcare: · Assistive technology can be defined very broadly. It is any type of technology that helps a person with a disability function in a way similar to the rest of the population. · Quality healthcare is centered around the person, the patients. It is not imposed on them, it is not too expensive, and it is accessible. It enhances everyone’s lives, not just the lives of people with disabilities. · Everyone’s life is enhanced when the community is inclusive of everyone. We can learn so much from each other by listening to people’s lived experience.

Georges Kanellopoulos: A Greek Primary Care Physician’s Perspective on Healthcare
It’s a Greek primary physician’s perspective on healthcare from Georges Kanellopoulos on this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare Podcast with Rob Oliver. Georges works in both Greece and Ireland which gives a unique wrinkle to his insights. He is a member of Generation X. Here are 3 things that stood out as George Kanellopoulos gave us a Greek primary care physician’s perspective on healthcare: · Healthcare is not just a life science. It is about caring, giving, and healing. · Healthcare practitioners must find the balance between being a scientist and being a human being. · The Greek healthcare system cannot be described as a “system”, it’s not organized enough to be called systematic. There is limited communication between the healthcare practitioners. Additionally, most of the payment is from the patient’s pocket.
