The initiative explores how emerging technologieswill advance the practice of medicine, improve health, and empower patients to be active participants in their own care. The “X” is meant to encourage thinking beyond numbers and trends—it represents the infinite possibilities for current and future information technologies to improve health. Under the direction of Dr. Larry Chu, Associate Professor of Anesthesia, Medicine X is a project of the Stanford AIM Lab.

World Hepatitis Summit 2015

World Hepatitis Summit 2015

  • Glasgow Scotland

Panel Lead

Worldwide, viral hepatitis kills approximately 1.4 million people a year and more than 400 million people are chronically infected with hepatitis B or C. Yet, there has been a remarkable lack of global action to combat the disease. As global momentum towards tackling hepatitis grows, the World Hepatitis Summit provides a unique platform to strengthen the hepatitis community voice, assist countries in developing national hepatitis action plans and to raise the global profile of viral hepatitis.

ABIM Foundation Forum 2015

  • Park City, Utah

Bringing Culture Into Focus


The 2015 ABIM Foundation Forum aims to reach a common understanding of how culture can affect performance in health care and its role in facilitating the patient-physician partnership in routine care, care of patients with multiple chronic conditions and care at the end of life.

Specific Forum goals include:

  • Develop a shared understanding of culture, its importance and how it affects attitudes, behaviors, processes and outcomes of care.
  • Explore how culture influences relationships among patients, families, clinicians and administrators. Investigate what a partnership model looks like and how it contrasts with current culture and practice in:
    • Preventive and acute care
    • Care of patients with multiple chronic conditions
    • Serious illness care
    • Redesign of care processes
  • Explore how community culture, organizational culture and cultural and individual characteristics of patients, families and clinicians affect experience of care, decision-making and outcomes.
  • Examine the experience of organizations and communities that have intentionally changed their culture and improved their performance.
