Technology & Innovation
Technology and innovation have always been a true north in my career in pediatrics. I founded the Digital Health department at Seattle Children’s Hospital in 2013. My goal was to leverage the wisdom of clinicians, patients, and researchers to transform health care delivery in the digital age.
My vision is a world where healthcare providers and patients use new technology to collaborate more closely and build deeper relationships than ever before. I believe innovation must embody “duel-centricity”: novel solutions must be patient-centered but also clinician-centered to create long-lasting change. Striking a balance here is key for successful innovation.
As I begin my transition out of the role of Chief of Digital Innovation, I wanted to leave behind a way to reference and highlight the amazing work that has been produced out of the Digital Health team over the past 6 years. My hope is that you find this both informative and inspirational, but I also wanted to share our failures and lessons we learned.
