UCSF: Harnessing technology for patient engagement

Patient engagement has shifted rapidly in healthcare over the last five years, and new technological advances are helping to drive the trend even further. At UCSF’sforthcoming, $1.52 billion Mission Bay campus in San Francisco, that will especially be the case, according to Seth Bokser. He is medical director for IT at the UCSF Center for Digital Health Innovation. Dr. Bokser has designed, and is implementing, the UCSF vision for patient-centered technology at its newest healthcare facility at Mission Bay, which will open Feb. 1, 2015.

He’s held numerous roles with UCSF, including assistant medical director for IT and assistant clinical professor. He is also associate professor of pediatrics. Dr. Bokser shared a few of his thoughts just ahead of MedCity’s ENGAGE Conference, where he will be speaking.
