Physicians are time scarce and focused on patient outcomes, as a result most are reluctant to get involved in IT solutions, as they don’t see the value. Just imagine if IT solutions could add value to the Physician by reducing the administrative burden and allowing closer patient interactions in the ward environment. Chronic diseases are growing out of all proportion, and most patients feel alone to cope with their need to comply to a new Life Style, imagine if IT could help motivate the patient and bring them closer to their Physician. Cancer is one of the largest killers, imagine if we could use Genomic profiles to assist researchers and influence Public Health policy and most importantly offer personalised medicine to improve patient outcomes.
3 Learning Objectives: • The challenges, and IT solutions to engage the physician in the IT journey • Understand how patient engagement can improve outcomes • Insights into new research capabilities in the areas of cancer and genomics
