Annual CCHSR Lecture

Everyone had high hopes that computers would be that magic bullet we’ve been desperate for to improve safety, quality, and efficiency. But the path to digital nirvana has been bumpy at best, in both the US and UK. Dr. Robert Wachter, chair of UCSF ’s Department of Medicine, bestselling author of “The Digital Doctor,” and leader of the group that authored the 2016 “Wachter Report” on digitising the NHS , describes why digitising healthcare is so hard, and what needs to be done to get it right. He’ll draw on examples from both the US and UK, and summarize the key recommendations from his committee’s work, work that transformed the path to digitisation in the NHS .
