The goal is to help us think about ways to improve “the patient experience” at Hopkins by learning from experts in other fields and disciplines.
Please join us in welcoming Shiv Rao, MD, co-founder and CEO of Abridge, on Thursday, October 19 at 5 p.m. via Zoom (Zoom link below). Dr. Rao will present a lecture entitled “Chasing Weird: Combining disparate inspirations from design to deep learning, to create impact at scale.” A Q&A session will follow the lecture.
Shiv Rao, MD is the co-founder and CEO of Abridge, a healthcare conversation company that uses generative AI to bring context and understanding to every medical conversation.
Through his own family’s experience with a rare disease and also treating patients as a practicing cardiologist, Dr. Rao saw opportunities to improve the gap between healthcare conversations and what happens next. With Abridge, doctors and patients alike can get more value from their medical conversations. Abridge enables providers to save time on documentation, while also empowering patients to stay on top of their health.
In addition to Abridge, he is a practicing cardiologist and previously led the provider-facing investment portfolio for UPMC. He completed his medical education and training at the University of Michigan and University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and studied at Carnegie Mellon where he programmed virtual synthesizers, sold records in Japan, and skateboarded in IMAX movies.

Our next speaker, Diana Heldfond, Founder and CEO of Parallel Learning, is scheduled for November 30, 2023.
