John Waite has joined forces with a former President of the United States for a very good cause. Joined by Alison Krauss, John met with Bill Clinton at a recent health summit in Laguna Beach, California.
John is friends with Joe Kiani, the medical entrepreneur who hosted the Patient Safety, Science and Technology conference. The event aimed to sign up manufacturers and developers of health monitoring devices hoping to reduce unnecessary patient deaths in the USA. Kiani, owner of leading health technology company Masimo, has been described as the “Bill Gates of the medical world”.
“It’s a very moving thing – many of us have had loved ones who have been in care and didn’t survive,” says John. “Joe is trying to create a database where every doctor can have access to every patient’s complete medical history. President Clinton gave a tremendous speech.”
