I’m pleased to be able to share information about the newest episode of Microsoft Health Tech Today, the on-line video series at the intersection of health and information technology. Our March program will premier on February 25th.
My guests include:
Patty Gabow, M.D., CEO, Denver Health
Learn how Dr. Gabow applied lessons learned from blue chip brands such as Mercedes-Benz and Ritz-Carlton to transform Denver's largest public health system; saving money, saving jobs and satisfying patients.
Michael Buist, M.D., inventor, PatientTrack
Dr. Michael Buist experienced not one, but two near-death experiences due to medical errors. An internist in Australia, he went on to invent Patientrack, a program that significantly improves the timeliness of doctors attending to their hospitalized patients.
Mayo Clinic Health Manager
Mayo Clinic internist, Dr. Tulledge-Scheitel, and one of her patients who suffers with chronic migraine headaches explain how an on-line tool called Mayo Clinic Health Manger (powered by Microsoft HealthVault) is helping patients manage and take ownership of their health.
Professor Daniel Fletcher, UC Berkeley
See how a cell phone can turn into a usable field microscope. It can take images of blood cells, bacteria or parasites and transmit them to far-away medical centers for diagnosis, helping detect disease outbreaks in poverty-stricken regions of the world.
See the trailer for our newest show below. I hope you enjoy the program when it premiers next week!
Bill Crounse, MD Senior Director, Worldwide Health Microsoft
