Elizabeth Toll, MD

As health information technology (HIT) integrates rapidly into all aspects of healthcare, it is important to remember that human relationships – between patients and practitioners, within healthcare teams, and among colleagues – lie at the core of why medical professionals are drawn to their work and are closely connected to professional satisfaction. HIT that is well designed and thoughtfully implemented can support these relationships. In this symposium, Elizabeth Toll, MD, primary care physician and Professor of Pediatrics and Medicine at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, explores how healthcare of the future can use HIT to support human relationships by examining 7 themes, including:

  • Relationships Matter More than Ever, and They are Changing
  • Addressing Disparities
  • Human-Centered Design
  • Effective HIT Education
  • Clinician Wellness
  • Working with Governments, Institutions, and Stakeholders to Support Human-Centered Care
  • Shared Data: Ethics, Implications, and Stewardship.
