Palakodeti received his MD and MPH (with a focus on Health Policy and Management) from the Wright State University School of Medicine in Dayton, OH. He completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Kaiser Permanente San Francisco and will be joining the Mayo Clinic this summer as a physician, specializing in Hospital Internal Medicine while focusing on health IT, innovation, and population health management.
What do you plan to focus on during your fellowship this year?
“I hope to focus on leveraging digital and hi-tech solutions along with a fresh perspective on creating the most efficient, equitable, cost-effective, and pleasant experience of healthcare for our patients and consumers. The disjointed, erratic, and irrational ways we have set up care in this nation have led to some of the most devastating health inequities and outcomes for our population. A thoughtful and creative approach to how we can simplify and streamline the process of maintaining wellness and seeking care in illness is our primary focus.
Specifically, we hope to key in on the areas of comprehensive digital health coordination, platforms to connect and follow-up with low access patients, and tools to create a standard of transparency both in price and clinical outcomes of various diagnostics and procedures.”
What’s the most exciting part of being granted this fellowship?
“The most exciting part about this fellowship, without question, is the collaboration with others in the healthcare space and with patients. The incredible InciteHealth staff, the Center for Primary Care, and all of the wonderful mentors, advisors, and investors who are on board provide such an inspiring and supportive culture for the Inciters to thrive. Being able to partner and team up with other Fellows, one of the most amazing and diverse group of people I have ever been around, is by far the most exciting and invigorating part of this program.”
