HIMSS 2018: The Philosophical Underpinnings of Achieving Connected Healthcare
Dr. Rasu Shrestha sees himself as a bridge builder, working to identify and make the connections across all the data points in the patient journey — before, during and after care. We talk with him at HIMSS 2018 about this philosophy on achieving patient-centered care.

- A key ingredient in patient-centered health? Being concerned about a patient where they eat, work, live and play — not just during care.
- That requires using technology to bring together the collected knowledge of the care environment and a patient's personal environment.
- At UPMC, Shrestha says that he and his team embrace technology in a "very purpose-driven" way.
