In the latest episode of The Entrepology Podcast, Dr. Meghan Walker talks with our very own Samer Abughannam about healthcare, technology and the art of building a socially impactful business.
To kick things off, Meghan and Samer discuss the personal and professional journey that inspired Samer to develop Layla in late 2018. They dive into the problems in the Canadian healthcare landscape that propelled this journey from it’s beginning - the incredible fragmentation of mental healthcare in Canada, and the resulting impacts on quality control and access.
Later in the episode the two talk about the impact of technology on healthcare and care delivery, the ups and downs of starting a venture, and how to identify a real problem and offer a solution for it.
Before signing off, Samer shares his greater vision for Layla and the impact that the Layla team would like to have on empowering people to take control of their mental health.
