An international expert on the impact of Health IT and author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Digital Doctor: Hope, Hype and Harm at the Dawn of Medicine's Computer Age, Dr. Robert Wachter will provide a unique perspective on healthcare's digital journey and what it will take to be successful. In his widely cited work, he has highlighted the surprising impact of EHRs on workflow and communication. Moreover, his observations regarding the "digital squeeze" on doctors are at the heart of the struggle many healthcare organizations face. Wachter, named in 2015 by Modern Healthcare magazine as the most influential physician-executive in the U.S., is a practicing physician, chairman of one of the top departments of medicine in the U.S., and he chaired the National Advisory Group on HIT in England. He'll offer new insights and practical steps to overcome the so-called "productivity paradox" of IT as it relates to healthcare.
