If tech is to be successful in health care, physicians need to be incorporated into the leadership structure, even if it means slowing down the process.
Here’s a clause for the new Oath, “Identifiable patient data cannot be leaked to insurance companies, employers or other interested parties without the specific consent of the patient.”
