Digital health legends Louise Schaper and George Margelis have been revealed as the co-hosts of the new Pulse podcast, launching at the Digital Health Festival in Melbourne this week.

Produced by Pulse+IT, Pulse promises to be a dynamic new voice in digital and data transformation in healthcare, providing listeners with a unique, highly entertaining perspective on the evolving landscape of digital health.

Dr Schaper, former CEO of the Australasian Institute of Digital Health, and Dr Margelis, independent chair of the Aged Care Industry IT Council, have decades of experience between them in the healthcare and digital health sectors and will be bringing their comprehensive and unique experiences to the show.

Dr Schaper said listeners can expect engaging discussions, thought-provoking interviews and expert analysis, making Pulse a must-listen for anyone interested in staying informed about the latest trends, challenges and innovations in health data and digital transformation.

“We live in a digital society and in this age of digital transformation, staying informed is crucial for everyone involved in healthcare,” Dr Schaper said. “Pulse aims to be a reliable (and entertaining) source of information and a platform for meaningful conversations about the future of health.”

Dr Margelis said the podcast will take a global perspective on digital transformation and will feature interviews with leading experts, innovators and influencers in the digital health space. It will cover the entire healthcare landscape, from acute care to primary care, aged care to allied health, as well as emerging technologies.

“We’re excited to bring our combined expertise to the forefront and explore the myriad ways in which digital technologies are reshaping the healthcare landscape,” Dr Margelis said. “Pulse is more than a podcast; it’s a journey into the heart of health innovation.”

The duo have opened up their rolodexes and will be calling on global leaders in digital transformation, as well as local expertise. It will also include news bulletins, case studies and insights into real-world examples of digital transformation.

Pulse+IT publisher and managing director Emily Mara said securing such high-profile presenters as Dr Schaper and Dr Margelis was a big coup for the podcast.

“Louise and George are absolute legends in digital health, not just in Australia and New Zealand but around the world,” Ms Mara said. “They are also absolutely hilarious and the podcast could not be helmed by a better, more dynamic duo. We’d like to thank our sponsors Telstra Health, MEDITECH and InterSystems for their great support.”

Pulse the podcast is available on Apple Podcasts and Spotify, with the first episodes launching in the coming weeks. You can follow the podcast via the links on the Pulse page and listen to the trailer here.

Pulse is launching at the Digital Health Festival, being held at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre from May 7 to 8. Pulse+IT is a media partner.
