Making Precision Medicine a Reality-blog

Ever since President Obama announced the precision medicine initiative, it’s become a hot topic in every healthcare organization. While it’s great to talk theoretically about what’s happening with precision medicine, I’m always more interested with what’s actually happening to make medicine more precise. That’s why I’m excited to sit down with a great panel of experts that are actually working in the trenches where precision medicine is being implemented.

On Monday, February 8, 2016 at 2 PM ET (11 AM PT) I’ll be hosting a live video interview with Curtis Dudley from Mercy and Dr. David Delaney from SAP where we’re going to dive into the work Curtis Dudley and his team are doing at Mercy around perioperative services analytics that improved quality outcomes and reduced delivery costs.

The great part is that you can join my live conversation with this panel of experts and even add your own comments to the discussion or ask them questions. All you need to do to watch live is visit this blog post on Monday, February 8, 2016 at 2 PM ET (11 AM PT) and watch the video embed at the bottom of the post or you can subscribe to the blab directly. We’ll be doing a more formal interview for the first 30 minutes and then open up the Blab to others who want to add to the conversation or ask us questions. The conversation will be recorded as well and available on this post after the interview.

Here are a few more details about our panelists:
