Picking the right physician for you or your family is important. So, whether you’ve just moved to a new area or your health care insurance coverage has changed, finding a new doctor can be a stressful process. Discerning the quality of a doctor or their practice however can be a whole other challenge. Most of the time in radiology, patients are directed to their radiologist based on the preference of their referring physician. Patients often don’t even realize that they have a choice in where they go.

Jamie Grooms, the CEO of the Florida Institute for the Commercialization of Pubic Research (here forward, The Institute) may not be known as the successful publicly-funded, Florida-based start-up’s secret weapon, but he should be. A seasoned serial entrepreneur who transitioned to leading two successful companies, Jamie leads a host of business, human resources, financial and scientific advisors at The Institute who are charged with leading nascent companies started at Florida universities or research centers through the “Valley of Death.” This real-world stage is when many start-ups lose velocity and disintegrate under the burden of a poor corporate design, inappropriate funding, improper concept execution, and the myriad traps that mine the path to success. I interviewed Jamie and Renee Finley, GuideWell’s Vice President of Enterprise Innovation, for the most recent episode of GuideWell Insights podcast series.
