John Patrick - Speaks Out on Solving the Complexities of Healthcare

John Patrick Speaker Biography


"It's not disease, dollars or doctors standing in the way of safe, affordable healthcare,"says Dr. Patrick. "The solution includes a new health attitude for patients, providers, payers and policymakers. Only when we confront the challenges of the healthcare system can we create meaningful change."

Dr. John R. Patrick's 35-year career at IBM placed him at the forefront of the Internet revolution and earned him the unofficial title of internet visionary. As Vice President for Internet Technology, he became an influential force behind the company's early adoption of the Internet and the World Wide Web. Upon retirement, he took a seat on the board of a Community Hospital, where he was shocked to learn how slowly hospitals were adopting new information technology.

"I was appalled at how archaic the hospital processes were - with paper, post-its, and clip boards everywhere. I found the lack of collaborative information sharing stunning,"recalls John. "I began to think there must be a way technology and changes in healthcare attitudes could make a difference."

That desire propelled him to earn his Doctorate in Healthcare Administration. During his studies, John discovered the cultural, technological, and attitudinal barriers holding back the United States from achieving a more affordable, accessible, and effective healthcare system. In his 2015 book release, Health Attitude: Unraveling and Solving the Complexities of Healthcare, he explores these problems painting a positive vision of the solutions that can create meaningful change. His 2001 book Net Attitude: What It Is, How to Get It, and Why Your Company Can't Survive Without It positioned him as a globally acclaimed speaker delivering enthusiastic, eye-opening, and thought-provoking presentations.

During his 35-years of service, John also served as the Vice President of Marketing during the launch of the IBM ThinkPad brand. It's one of the reasons why Business 2.0 named him as one of the industry's most intriguing minds, Industry Week named him one of the top 30 people who drive innovation and provide the initial spark to economic growth, and Network World called him one of the 25 most powerful people in networking.

John was a founding member of the World Wide Web Consortium at MIT in 1994, a founding member and past chairman of the Global Internet Project, a member of the Internet Society and the American College of Healthcare Executives, a senior member of the Association for Computing Machinery, and a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. He has been a business and technology advisor to numerous companies and is a board member at MecklerMedia, Inc. and OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. He is a member of the Western Connecticut Health Network Biomedical Research Institute Advisory Council. John also holds degrees in electrical engineering, management, law, and health administration.

Why Our Healthcare Is So Expensive and How We Can Get It Under Control
Dr. Patrick paints a positive vision of the solutions that can create meaningful change. His vision includes a system focused on patients and uses an accountability-oriented, fee-for-value model. He describes how leading-edge information technology, mobile, big data, analytics, and mHealth (mobile health) can achieve safe, high quality and more affordable healthcare.

How Information Technology Can Save Healthcare In America
Dr. Patrick takes an incredibly complicated topic, breaks it down, and presents in a manner lay persons can understand. With no political bias, he articulates how healthcare cost is the number one problem, and outlines the components of the problem. He then describes solutions which can make American healthcare safer and more affordable.

Healthcare in the Era of the Cloud
The Internet is changing how we manage our health, and who better to discuss this subject than Internet pioneer and Doctor of Health Administration, John Patrick. The personal healthcare revolution is just beginning, according to John, and massive changes are coming to healthcare. The changes will of course include new medical devices and medical records in the cloud, but also a great change in "attitude."
