Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Cole Lysaught & Abbas Khan discuss the following:
- What exactly is Bloom Health Partners? What kind of service do you provide? Who are your primary clients?
- Bloom launched about a year and a half ago in the heart of the pandemic. Can you tell us a little bit about creating a pop-up covid testing site in a parking lot and what happened to lead up to that moment?
- What happened next? How did Bloom go from a parking lot to working with Fortune 500 companies, TV and Movie Studios and schools?
- What is your vision for the Bloom service platform? Can you describe your business model? What makes Bloom different from your competitors?
- This past year and a half has put a lot of stress on our healthcare system and in the process shown parts that were broken. Let’s talk a little bit about what you saw and the disruption that Bloom looked to create within the industry? How are you transforming health care support and making companies more dynamic? How does this make a difference for your clients?
- Education and misinformation have been tremendous challenges for everyone during covid. Tell us a little about your Board of Directors and your Advisory board. Who you have involved and why? These boards are critical to your client support model. Can you explain?
- What do you think are the biggest challenges that companies and industries face now in this phase of the pandemic? And how are you helping them navigate these challenges?
- Bloom was recently acquired by Maitri Health Technologies. What does this mean for Bloom and Maitri? What is next from here?
