Leading hospitalist joins Google's health advisory council
Hospitalist Leadership Connection, July 18, 2007
Robert Wachter, MD, a professor of medicine at the University of California at San Francisco and past president of the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) who is credited with co-creating the term "hospitalist," recently joined a new health advisory council established by Google, according to SHM's July e-newsletter.
Healthcare experts from provider organizations, consumer and disease-based groups, physician organizations, research institutions, policy foundations, and other fields compose the council. Its mission is to assist Google in understanding problems that both consumers and providers face, and to offer feedback on product ideas and development, the SHM states.
According to SHM, Google will use the council's research and feedback to help make the search engine's results "more medically relevant."
