Episode 49: Digital Health Care in Scotland

by Aledade

Professor George Crooks (@CrooksGeorge) is the CEO of the Digital Health and Care Institute, Scotland’s national innovation center for digital health care. On this week’s episode, he shares his vision of integrating Scotland’s fragmented health data platforms in order to enable health care providers to deliver higher quality care and empower individuals to take charge of their own health data. He describes the challenges he faces as he spearheads a major transformation of the health care system, some of which are unique to the UK, and others which will resonate with those of us living across the pond.
