Exclusive From HIMSS24: Meet Phil Bradley, HIMSS Global Digital Health Strategist

HIMSS is far more than a gathering of 36,000 health information pros - it's a professional society diving into the trenches of building a connective health ecosystem

At the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual gathering  Phil Bradley, HIMSS digital health strategist. Says Bradley:

The use of technology in healthcare offers numerous benefits.  But it must be easy for clinicians to use and document the care provided without barriers or interruptions to their train of thought.  Not an easy task.”

Bradley leads an HIMSS team of 40 professionals working with health systems to manage the professional society’s Analytics Maturity Models.  These effort include working with the health provider systems, software vendors, certified consultants and peer-review teams to ensure their health information systems are geared to do their best work supporting patient care. Phil also serves as the point of contact for all Stage 7 validations across the Americas.

Gil and Phil discuss the uptake and efficacy of electronic medical records and related digital health IT platforms, emphasizing clinician-user experience, workplace fatigue, and the need for clinician engagement to be “actionable.”

Listen to their conversation live – captured by Health Unabashed Executive Produce Gregg Masters, MPH, straight from the HIMSS exhibit floor:
