The Innovation Hub’s Book Clhub has just started reading The Patient Will See You Now by Eric Topol. It’s about the digital revolution in health care.
From Amazon: “With smartphones in hand, we are no longer beholden to an impersonal and paternalistic system in which ‘doctor knows best.’ Medicine has been digitized, Topol argues; now it will be democratized. Computers will replace physicians for many diagnostic tasks, citizen science will give rise to citizen medicine, and enormous data sets will give us new means to attack conditions that have long been incurable.”
The Chlub be discussing the book at noon in the Hub on Wednesday, April 12.

Have You Pledged for Patient Safety Yet?
Due to the weather, we have moved the Patient Safety Awareness Week webinar originally scheduled for today from 1 to 2 p.m. in Ren 1, to Thursday, March 16, from 1 to 2 p.m. in Ren 1. We will still have our scavenger hunt clue, so check the Daily Buzz tomorrow. Remember to take the pledge for patient safety– not only this week, but every week!
Patient safety event reporting (incident reporting) is a mainstay for hospital efforts to detect patient safety events and quality problems. At Sibley, our reporting system is called HERO. For this program to be successful, we must foster a supportive non-punitive environment that encourages all to report not only actual event,s but also near miss events. What is the department that oversees this program?
