Our guest today is Cody Hall, CEO and founder of Octiva. Cody is a marines veteran who after spending time in larger organizations decided to start a company that solves a big healthcare issue: the transition care of patients post hospital dismissal.

In our conversation, Cody talked about how the different experiences he had, from the military to working in companies like Apple led him to the insight that he needed to operate in nimbler and more entrepreneurial environment. He also shared how he is building a company culture that emphasizes the need for employee self-care even in a fast paced start-up environment.

Finally, we discussed some of the upcoming trends in healthcare, specifically, the impact Value Based Care will have on all stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem.
