RLI Summit Keynote Address: Health 3.0 - Preserving Doctor-Patient Relationships in The High Tech Era

March 19, 2015

Best-selling author and patient-centered health care authority, Abraham Verghese, MD, MACP, senior associate chair, Stanford University School of Medicine, will deliver the keynote address August 6 at the American College of Radiology’s Radiology Leadership Institute® (RLI) Leadership Summit. 

Verghese, the nationally best-selling author of Cutting for Stone, has published extensively in scientific literature, and is known for his New York Times articles "Treat the Patient, Not the CT Scan" and "Restoring the Lost Art of the Physical Exam", which coined the term "iPatient" for electronic health records. He has been elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences and was the 2014 recipient of the Heinz Award for Arts and Humanities. 

“Dr. Verghese is a dynamic and motivating speaker. His presentation will be inspiring, provocative and challenging. Attendees will leave the Summit with a greater understanding of coming health care changes and better equipped to shape the forces that affect their practices and profession,” said Cynthia S. Sherry, MD, FACR, medical director of the RLI and chair of the ACR Commission on Leadership and Practice Development. 

Titled, “Thriving in Changing Times,” the RLI Summit, Aug. 6-9 at Babson College in Wellesley, MA, will help radiology professionals understand the new business of health care and adapt to capitalize on upcoming changes. Featured topics at the 2015 event include:

  • How Industries (Including Health Care) Really Change
  • Marketing Concepts to Seed Practice Growth
  • Investing In Your Practice, Wisely
  • Strategy: Setting a Course for Your Future
