Healthcare Digital Transformation with Paddy Padmanabhan

One of the first healthcare books coming out during the pandemic is called Healthcare Digital Transformation: How Consumerism, Technology, and Pandemic are Accelerating the Future and is co-authored by Paddy Padmanabhan, CEO at Damo Consulting, and Ed Marx, Chief Digital Officer at Tech Mahindra Health and life Sciences and Former CIO at Cleveland Clinic.  The topic of Digital Transformation in healthcare is such an important one that we’ll be discussing it at our first Experience with Ed Marx as keynote.

As a preview to the book and Ed Marx’s keynote, we thought it would be great to get some perspectives from Paddy Padmanabhan about Healthcare Digital Transformation.  In the video interview below, we ask Padmanabhan if digital transformation is really accelerating or if it’s just hyperbole.  His response is fascinating since it means different things to different organizations.

We also ask Padmanabhan to share the characteristics of a healthcare organization that’s not embracing digital transformation and then what a healthcare organization that is embracing digital transformation look like?  Plus, we discuss if the EHR is a help or a hindrance to digital transformation and he shares where EHR fits within his 4 stage digital transformation maturity model.

If you’re looking at Digital Transformation for your healthcare organization, you’ll enjoy learning from the guy who literally wrote the book on the topic.

To dive deeper into the topic, join us for the free October 2020 Experience where Ed Marx will be sharing “Five Keys to Developing a Digital Strategy.”  Plus, you can engage with Marx and the health IT community throughout the event.
