Podcast Series


Sean Khozin is a practicing physician in New York City and the co-founder of Hello Health, a web-based electronic medical record system and communication platform that enables doctors and patients to connect online via email, instant messaging, and video chat. This week, Khozin discusses over-the-counter genomics testing and the integration of technology into the direct care model.
