AAPM looks forward to welcoming Amy L. Compton-Phillips, MD, executive vice president and chief clinical officer for Providence Health & Services, to deliver the 2018 Keynote Address during the AAPM 34th Annual Meeting General Session I on Friday, April 27, 8:15-9:15 am.
Dr. Compton-Phillips has an extensive background in directing patient care programs and leading healthcare organizations. She will share a physician executive's perspective while speaking to 2018 AAPM Annual Meeting attendees about navigating healthcare system changes, systems’ responses to pain management issues, and the general state of health care and its impact on pain physicians practicing at both private and academic institutions.
Dr. Compton-Phillips’ Address, titled Practicing Medicine in the Age of Accelerations, will explain how data from both within and outside health care will create predictive, precision analytics; how integrated decision support with context-specific knowledge will supplement the human mind with assisted intelligence; and how -omics (genomic, proteomic, metabalomic, etc.) guided therapy will personalize care options, allowing for participative care.
“The world is changing rapidly,” Dr. Compton-Phillips says. “The way we communicate, the way we learn, the jobs we do and the environment we live in, all have changed radically in the past 20 years and with this the transformation of medicine has begun.”
