Around the Health Tech World: Omri Shor



Omri Shor is founder and CEO of medication adherence platform, Medisafe.

1. What is your morning routine?

I wake up every day at 5:15, grab some coffee and review of emails from our teams in Israel.

By 6am I start my daily workout with a combination of biking, running or swimming, then help my kids get ready for school.

By 8am, I am in the office responding to emails, prepping for meetings and connecting with clients and stakeholders.

Each week, I devote at least two to three hours on strategy and ideation to map out the future of the organisation and the steps to get there.

2. Which technology could you not live without?

I rely on my mobile phone the most. It’s what keeps us connected and has changed our lives to make everything much more accessible.

I think about the times before a smartphone where I relied on an atlas while driving to get me to my appointments. Now the GPS in my phone does all the work, and has transformed all our lives.

3. How do you relax?

My morning workout is essential to help clear my head, take on the day, and prioritise my time.

I have also included yoga sessions this year, so once or twice a week I am doing yoga to also help me relax and unwind, both physically and mentally.

4. Which quote resonates with you?

Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.

By understanding when good is good enough, you can move faster and accomplish more, because often the last 20% can take 80% of effort and achieving absolute perfection can be impossible with diminishing returns.

5. What is the best thing about your job?

The best thing about my job is seeing a dream we had 10 years ago become a reality that continues 10 years later and is helping to support the lives of more than 10M patients, and creating more than $100M in value for our pharma partners.

6. If you could spend a day in someone else’s shoes, whose would they be and why?

With more of healthcare being united with technology, EHR platforms play an important role in creating the connected healthcare ecosystem for the future.

Given that, I would be interested to learn of the challenges that Epic CEO Judith Faulkner experiences, and her outlook on the future.

7. What is the one thing that we are not talking about?

Inertia and stagnation are holding back our industry from transformation.

All it takes is an open mind and forward-thinking vision for healthcare leaders to embrace change and make a significant impact on patient futures.

8. Would you rather travel 100 years forward or back in time?

I would rather travel forward. I’m excited to see what the future holds, and how technology will shape our future and how the plans we’re making now will impact the road ahead.

9. What advice would you give to an 18-year-old you (and would you have listened to you!)?

I would tell him to think bigger and move faster.

At 18, I was a bit stubborn in my thinking, but I’d like to think I would have convinced me to take the advice.

10. What is your biggest regret?

I try not to have regrets, only moments that I can learn from. So there are many experiences in my past where things didn’t go according to plan, but I certainly learned a lot from them.

Bonus round!

11. What is the future of digital health technology?

I believe in the next five years, we won’t call it digital health, it will just be health.

Digital will become a mainstream component in the delivery of care, and a central part of the way businesses operates.

12. What is your biggest challenge right now?

Helping to drive change within big organisations is a significant undertaking.

I work closely with  executives to show that the world is changing, and shift their thinking around the use and value of technology for healthcare.

13. What do people not know about Medisafe?

We have big ambitions to become a critical component that fully embeds Medisafe into the patient journey.

We have new advancements and solutions to be announced in the coming weeks that will enable us to support a more connect health future.
