Connecting to Patients and Each Other Through Technology

The following is a guest contributed post from Dr. Pamela Fadul, an anesthesiologist affiliated with Palomar Health in California.

As an anesthesiologist, my goal is to make the hospital a better, more efficient place to work so that I may provide the best possible care to my patients from the moment they come under my supervision. As part of this, improving a patient’s health record – and our access to it – by using effective mobile technology is an important step to providing holistic care. With nearly half of a physician’s day devoted to administrative tasks, it feels as though the time we clinicians can spend with our patients is getting slimmer and slimmer.
