We kick off by asking Ryan what has lead him to this point, his career and why Vori Health:

  • Yale University
  • Neurosurgeon
  • Google Health
  • Well trained as a spine surgeon
  • Mental health
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Surgical revenue
  • Incentives are miss aligned

We ask Ryan what is the impact with people reporting back pain because they are spending more time sat in a chair as they are no longer to commuting to work since COVID:

  • One in four people are actively depressed
  • Pain and dysfunction
  • It has increased depression due to isolation, lonely and sad
  • Increased amounts of pain and neck pain because of the way they are sitting

We get into mental health and ask Ryan, what is the medical balance:

  • Social media are increasing depression
  • Fear of missing out
  • People don't generally share their bad days
  • Biased views

Instant gratification, we ask Ryan to share with us what are his concerns and what trends he sees and how Vori Health shakes things up:

  • Instant access to information
  • People are not disconnecting, even on vacation
  • Desensitised
  • Designed to give you that good feeling
  • Less happy
  • Heavily false
  • A perfect image, is abnormal
  • It's the patients choice

We then have Ryan tell us why he thinks corporate environments are paying more attention to their employees wellness today:

  • It's the right thing to do
  • Higher rights of burnouts
  • Work ethics, how much harder can you work next year
  • Home is the office now
  • Promote wellness, they will actually be more productive

We move on to ask Ryan what his expansion plan is:

  • Health coaches
  • Nutritionists
  • Social workers
  • True care teams
  • Share decision making

What does the future look like to Ryan and why so passionate?

  • People should be treated like family
