2177: Claire Vo, CPO at Color Shares Her Journey From Tech to Healthcare

The Tech Talks Daily Podcast

Claire Vo, Chief Product Officer at Color, shares how she went from tech to healthcare. At Color, Claire leads the engineering, product management, data, and design teams to develop the company’s population health platform, services, and technology. She joined Color from Optimizely, where she was Chief Product Officer, building enterprise-grade experimentation and progressive delivery products. After spending her entire career in tech, Claire made the jump into healthcare when she realized how the pandemic revealed just how inaccessible much of the U.S. health infrastructure is for people who need it most. The digital health industry boomed during the pandemic, with a proliferation of new services to address every part of the care ecosystem, but it also revealed just how inaccessible much of the U.S. health infrastructure is for people who need it most. Based on her current position at Color, a company focused on delivering a scalable public health infrastructure for millions, Claire discusses what it means to build a healthcare product focused on increasing access for millions and how companies can build infrastructure for scaled impact. Within digital health, Claire is passionate about the fact that software alone cannot solve public health crises – a notion which was proven through many companies’ responses to the COVID-19 pandemic laid bare. There is a tendency to believe better tech is always the answer, but while the right software can reduce friction and drive better insights, healthcare is essentially a human interaction at the end of the day. It requires a hybrid model that incorporates both better technology and the personal touch of a visit to the doctor’s office or a pharmacy.

Banishing Cynicism and Empowering Yourself as a Product Leader (with Claire Vo, CPO @ Color & Impending TikTok Influencer)

One Knight in Product

Claire Vo is a product & technology executive leader, startup founder and future Queen of TechTok, who believes that cynicism and a negative mindset is product and career-limiting, and that people need to stop asking permission to do their jobs. Here are some of Claire's insights about her career and approach to work:A worthy mission is attractive, but an exceptional team is importantClaire moved to HealthTech because the opportunity was right. It's great to join a worthy company but you need a team you can work with, a problem you can contribute to & a company that needs your skills.CPTOs can work well in the right contextThere are a lot of benefits of having clear, joined up leadership between tech & product but it has to work for your organisation & you need a strong leader that ultimately supports the business and not one or other of the functions.Frameworks alone aren't going to build a great productUse frameworks as conversation starters and mechanisms to help you along but you still need to do the hard work of product management to actually make a difference in the world. Frameworks won't help you win on their own.You can bring your whole self to the table & still be credibleIt's possible for leaders to be credible & professional and have a sense of humour. It's important to bring your full self to work & to social media as long as you are respectful to your colleagues and customers.Optimism trumps cynicism every timeJust because work can be hard doesn't mean you should have a negative mindset. It's important to be realistic & critical but mix this with a sense of optimism, "how might we" attitude and empower yourself as a product manager or leader.There's still a lot to do to get proper inclusion at workThere continues to be bias against women & mothers at work. Women have to live up to expectations that men don't. Claire beat the system by refusing to ask for permission to do her job, and you should too.

Optimizely's Claire Vo Talks Successful A/B Testing at Scale

The New Stack Podcast

When building front-end software, it can be tricky to figure out just what works. As with any page layout endeavor, from the Web to the supermarket checkout line tabloids, there are plenty of nooks and crannies to explore with headlines, graphics, and colors. Any software shop earning money on the Web likely already knows about "A/B" testing: the practice of subtle changing your page design and gathering metrics on its effectiveness at converting visitors versus the existing version of the site.Now that such testing regimes are commonplace in the enterprise, it is inevitable that every team eventually encounters the egregeous and exhausting existentialist crisis that is test management. Gathering metrics for a single test is one thing, but what happens when the entire enterprise is pushing tests across thousands of sites all the time?Claire Vo is Silicon Valley success story: she sold her startup Experiment Engine to Optimizely in 2017. Her particular winning formula was to help solve this exact problem for enterprises: Managing experiments at scale across thousands of sites, and measuring results in order to effect actionable changes overall.
