In this episode we welcome Greg Malpass, CEO of Traction on Demand. His company has launched a free, open-source mobile application for healthcare providers that are fighting the COVID-19 outbreak. The app is called Traction Thrive and helps to manage healthcare equipment during the pandemic.
Traction Thrive is a new initiative which came about as a reaction to the ongoing epidemic, so Greg takes us through his thought process on why this app was prioritized and built over any other ideas. He explains the user experience and typical workflows for healthcare workers and how different resources can be assigned based on a supply and demand algorithm via this new and innovative software.
Traction Thrive is available only in Canada right now, but Greg explains that his company is working hard to make it available in the United States and other countries. In addition to this timely app, Greg also talks about other useful tools created by Traction on Demand. Codrin and Greg later share their thoughts on how healthcare might be changed forever because of COVID-19.
