Fighting the Cesarean Epidemic with Phones & Data

  1. Besides implementing clinical protocols for healthcare providers working in hospitals, what else can be to address the cesarean epidemic in the U.S.?
  2. We want our doctors to be experts, and our apps to be disruptive and innovative; how do we get doctors and apps to work together?
  3. We have big data on the cesarean epidemic, and yet we don’t entirely understand why it’s unchecked. What are we missing here?
