As Steve Schiff, MD a practicing cardiologists puts it
The campaign includes an e-Guide: The Art of Medicine in A Digital World replete with thoughts, suggestions and concepts to manage the digital world while remaining focused on the most important person in the examination room - the patient. The release was covered in this piece by HIT Consultant and referenced the panel taking place next month in Boston.As far back as I can remember, there was never a time when I didn’t want to be a physician. It’s a choice in which there is no equivocation: either you want to be a doctor or you don’t.
Many of the thoughts and ideas were captured in the Top 38 lessons from Digital Health CEO’s from Rock Health. I picked a few choice quotes that capture the spirit and intent fo the Art of Medicine for me:
“Healthcare is yet to be transformed by technology.” - Joshua KushnerThe campaign kicked off this week with this resource page - The Art of Medicine and a short video highlighting the challenges and opportunites
“You need a degree of foolishness to cause disruptive change in healthcare. Dare to dream.” - Vinod Khosla
“If you’re going to re-invent healthcare you have to start from scratch.” - Vinod Khosla
“The key to good product is invisibility for the user.”
“Partnership is going to be absolutely key to taking healthcare to the next transition in evolution.” - Sue Siegel
There will be much discussion at HIMSS14 around the topic and we are looking forward to hosting the panel on Thursday, March 27, 2014, 9:00-11:00 a.m. at Boston’s W Hotel. You can find out more and/or register here or come by our booth 3765 at HIMSS14.
