Vice President of Digital Health

You’ll be glad you saw Aaron because...

This digital quality pioneer comes to Quality Talks with a rallying cry for a reset about what digitalization means.

Expect to learn why converting to digital quality measurement is as much about anthropology and sociology as it is about technology. Rather than digitalization turbocharging how we work now, the real opportunity is in rewiring work culture. How people think about their jobs, and how they relate to each other, matters more than the software and hardware they use.

Aaron sees true digitalization as both more complex, and more interesting, than the adoption of EHRs, a decade ago.

After hearing Aaron, the digital future will seem both more clear to you—and bigger.
