Q: What are your goals for this course?
A: I love the passion of people in Health IT. I believe that most of us enter the field to really make a personal difference. That is why I like to talk about increasing efficiency, effectiveness and improving patient safety. We get there through our daily habits.
We have some really big challenges in healthcare, and we cannot solve it alone. I believe each individual has unique strengths and abilities.
I've committed to help 1,000 - 2,500 in our field (of 250,000 health IT professionals) get to the "top of their game." Since I've automated over 1% of the hospitals in America, I feel like I should help 1% in our field maximize their individual potential.
I have a screen saver on my smartphone for everyone in the course. It is our brief manifesto for "Health IT Heroes"
"I'm a Health IT Hero. My daily habits contribute to my team to build safer, more efficient and effective systems for healthcare.
I'm just one habit away..."
