Dr. Wachter is a recognized thought leader in healthcare quality, safety and organization of care. A practicing physician, he is intimately familiar with and involved in both the promises and challenges related to the computerization of healthcare. His just published book – The Digital Doctor: Hope, Hype and Harm at the Dawn of Medicine’s Computer Age (April 2015) – offers an unvarnished view of the early days of healthcare’s transformation (a so-far untold story), and an insightful and provocative exploration of what it will take, from all of us, to successfully shift from “disruption” to “disruptive innovation.” A speaker and writer renowned for his iconoclastic and often humorous insights into the transforming world of healthcare, Dr. Wachter’s blog, www.wachtersworld.org, is one of the nation’s most popular healthcare blogs. He is the author of 250 articles and six books, including two best-sellers on the subject of safety and quality: Understanding Patient Safety and Digital Doctor: Hope, Hype and Harm at the Dawn of Medicine’s Computer Age.
