STRYKERTALKS – Acute Care’s Mathieson explains how Vocera fits into Stryker’s goal to help nurses
In this episode of StrykerTalks, Jessica Mathieson, vice president and general manager of the Acute Care, recounts her unusual path into the medical device industry, giving advice to others interested in making the transition. The conversation then delves into an unassuming – but critical – piece of medical equipment – the hospital bed where most patient-healthcare interaction takes place. Later in the interview, Mathieson will talk about Stryker’s work to provide new technologies that help healthcare workers handle their increasing stress loads; technologies that incorporate technology from the recently acquired Vocera. Also, how is Stryker sharing risk with hospitals to increase patient safety?
