HxRefactored Sneak Preview: Stephen Buck, Product Manager, IMS Health
What is your burning mission in health and why?
SB: Improve value patients receive from healthcare providers. Increase usage of evidence by all stakeholders in making treatment decisions.
What is your patient story?
SB: 10 years ago I broke my hip and femur. I asked my docs to show me the different possible outcomes from different surgical procedures using specific statistical probabilities. They looked at me like I was on crack.
What new health-related website, app, or technology do you think will improve health?
SB: AppScript from IMS Health of course (I’m the Product Manager)… wouldn’t it be great if your doctor could recommend an app that would actually help you to improve your health (and not waste your time)?
Why should people come to your session?
SB: To learn from our experiences in designing a provider tool to help get integrated in clinical workflow.
