Leveraging Partnerships & Technology with Michael Mann, Managing Director of Tachyon Insights

Today I have the pleasure of diving into a few various topics with someone I respect. My guest is Michael Mann, Managing Director of Tachyon Insights. I always value his insights into what is happening in the world of caregiving. Along with his personal story, he is passionate about bringing tools and tech to older adults that are socially isolated.

Michael serves healthcare providers, homecare, payers, hospitals and digital health startups. He has his pulse on what is happening in the world of technology that supports family caregivers and older adults. We talk about the challenges that caregivers are facing right now and what the landscape of care looks like.

As a recent moderator at the HCT conference, he brings his insight into what businesses are coming together to provide leadership and address care concerns to support families. We look at the framework that is in place for socially minded businesses. We also talk about his perspective on big tech such as Amazon and Apple moving into the older adult care space and what the landscape of care looks like in the next few years.

Thank you, Michael, for sharing your story and educating us that we are not alone and our voice matters. Don't miss this conversation with Michael Mann.
