Congratulations to Chris Godfrey for being interviewed by HealthCare Innovators in their series on “inspirational individuals” in the healthcare industry. Godfrey is a 2015 graduate of the Executive Master in Healthcare Leadership (EMHL) program and the founder of Bloodbuy, a cloud-based technology company that connects hospitals and blood centers nationwide.
In the course of this interview, Godfrey explains how he discovered the inefficiencies in the blood supply industry and outlines how Bloodbuy overcomes these barriers. Godfrey also provides invaluable advice for professionals seeking to advance their careers.
We are honored that Godfrey considered EMHL a critical asset in the buildout of his company and appreciate his thoughts on the value of EMHL’s design thinking, multidisciplinary approach, excellent faculty, and peer-to-peer engagement. According to Godfrey:
“The program at Brown is really dynamic and really suited for what I was looking for…. It’s a hybrid type program designed for individuals that are already established in their careers… (The program) brings together clinicians, bankers, people in the pharmaceutical industry, administrators, nurses, and people with a really broad background so that we could (master) the… curriculum…. We had an extremely diverse cohort and we learned as much from each other… working in team-based environments throughout the program as we did through… the curriculum based learning.”
