It's now 2022. We have the internet, new space programs, electric vehicles...but anesthesia providers still struggle, at times, to get the simplest report like, "How many minutes of anesthesia were performed today?" Still less are they able to benefit from deeper dives into analytics.

On this episode, Dr. Zavaleta and Graphium Health VP of Engineering, Matt Oldham, discuss advanced analytics and their potential impact on...

When Graphium first started, there was a lot of hesitation in the marketplace about automation - especially when it came to something like tracking vital signs, which had always been done by a human. Giving that trust over to a computer can be, understandably and respectably, a challenge for a clinician who is responsible for a life in the OR.

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men.
