Podimetrics CEO, Jon Bloom

As an anesthesiologist, Jon Bloom was distressed to participate in so many foot amputations for diabetic patients. He vowed to do something to consign this barbaric, Civil War era procedure to the dustbin of history. Eventually, he met up with some like-minded co-founders at an early Hackathon and the result was Podimetrics.

A decade later, the team has developed and deployed a technology and care management solution that is putting their goal in reach. Of course in the US healthcare system, amputations are lucrative for providers but prevention isn’t. So that’s an extra hurdle Podimetrics has had to clear.

In this episode of the HealthBiz podcast, Jon traces Podimetrics’ path. But we also carve out time to discuss high school marching band, why it took him 8 years to graduate from college, his dreams of being a punk rock musician, and what my son Harry Williams was like as a Podimetrics summer intern.

If your healthcare or life sciences business needs strategy consulting, I’d be happy to discuss. We have two decades of experience working with companies whose strategic opportunities and challenges are similar to Podimetrics. Contact us here.
