The Talking Tech Podcast Episode 7 – Erkeda DeRouen: Tech & Medicine Unite for Healthcare Revolution

In this episode, which premiered on 10/31/2023, I talked with Erkeda DeRouen (MD) about her passion for merging the humanistic aspect of medicine with the new field of emerging technology. Erkeda shared her experience working in a healthtech startup company in the early days of telemedicine, going into full time business for herself as a healthcare consultant, and her non-profit leadership role in helping women & non-binary adults learn software development skills. Erkeda and I also talked at length about her thoughts on emerging technology’s ability to improve healthcare for all and how she plans to revolutionize health care with community, collaboration, and cybernetics through The Pace Makerz organization. This is a conversation you won’t want to miss!
