Speaker: Ricky Bloomfield, MD, at Apple

Date: March 2, 2020 at 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Healthcare has been slow to adopt scalable, interoperable, user-centric solutions as other industries have done, but technology is finally catching up with the needs of patients. Ricky will share how Apple's support and use of open standards has helped accelerate adoption across the country.

Dr. Bloomfield joined Apple's Health team in November 2016 as the Clinical and Health Informatics Lead where he works on products that empower patients to improve their health. Prior to joining Apple, Dr. Bloomfield was the Director of Mobile Technology Strategy and a pediatric hospitalist at Duke Health in Durham, NC, where he began a personal mission to liberate EHR data to empower patients and clinicians to solve healthcare's biggest problems.
