William W. Feaster, MD, MBA, HIMSS Physician Committee Chair, FY20

Physicians and Technology

Physicians around the world are increasingly under pressure to improve the quality, cost-effectiveness, and safety of patient care. Patients are demanding a different type of clinical encounter, and physicians are experiencing new requirements to adopt and use information technologies that are expensive and, neither intuitive nor user-friendly. Decisions about how care is to be delivered, paid for, and evaluated, are being made at the highest levels, without a cogent, unified physician-created IT roadmap.

Join Us

HIMSS is building a community that all physicians can leverage to profoundly influence the transformation of healthcare.
