Michael Brooks

Chief Medical Officer PatientSource (United Kingdom)

MichaelBrooksMike Brooks is both a practicing Emergency Medicine doctor and a computer programmer. As a junior doctor he witnessed many occasions where patients came to harm because of the way medical data is handled in most UK hospitals… entirely on paper. At the very worst, he witnessed a fully-able patient suffer an avoidable massive stroke entirely because a piece of paper with an important test result on it had gotten lost. So he left full time clinical practice to sort this out and founded PatientSource Ltd. PatientSource is an electronic health care records platform that has been designed by clinicians for doctors and nurses making it intuitive to their practice.
