Dr Joseph Kvedar
VICE PRESIDENT, CONNECTED HEALTH
Joseph C. Kvedar, MD, Vice President, Connected Health, Partners HealthCare, is creating a new model of healthcare delivery, developing innovative strategies to move care from the hospital or doctor’s office into the day-to-day lives of patients. Dr. Kvedar is leveraging information technology – cell phones, computers, networked devices and remote health monitoring tools – to improve care delivery. Partners connected health programs are also helping providers and patients better manage chronic conditions, maintain health and wellness and improve adherence, engagement and clinical outcomes. In 2013, Dr. Kvedar launched Wellocracy, a leading source of impartial, easy-to-understand information on new personal “self-health” technologies like activity trackers, wireless devices and mobile apps to empower people to get and stay healthy. In 2015, he published his first book, The Internet of Healthy Things, focusing on technology-enabled health and wellness, trends and business opportunities.
