Thought leaders, as characterized by strategy consultant Dorie Clark, are individuals and entities that don’t simply participate in a conversation, but that drive it. Such is the primary objective of the Center for Connected Medicine: To serve as a global thought leader defining the transformation of health care.
Founders of the Center recognized the price resulting from the current fragmented state of health care. Lack of connectivity and integration among various stakeholders erodes quality, impedes access and drives cost in an upward spiral. Partners at the Center are committed to promoting the cultural change and development of interconnected systems so vital to improved care delivery.
Andrew R. Watson, MD, MLitt, FACS, serves as Medical Director of the Center for Connected Medicine and is internationally recognized for his visionary theories related to connected medicine. A much sought-after presenter, Dr. Watson leverages his experiences as a fourth-generation surgeon and educator to explore promising connectivity enablers such as telemedicine, artificial intelligence and voice recognition that can influence more informed clinical and care management decisions.
