MedCity Pivot Podcast: How Jonathan Bush wants to provide an operating system for a universal patient record

In this episode of the MedCity Pivot Podcast, Jonathan Bush talks about his latest venture – Zus Health – through which he wants to help digital health companies share data to create a universal patient off of which new products can be created to serve payers, providers and others with the ultimate goal of improving patient outcomes.
