Now in its second year, HSJ picks the 100 clinical leaders of 2014 based on their greatest impacts in health policy, service transformation, and innovation. All individuals selected by HSJ contribute to the impact by using their clinical backgrounds in a variety of ways.
A happy hat tip to Dr. Paul Hodgkin, featured in the list as founder and chair of Patient Opinion. This is a non-profit service that uses patients’ voices to reform healthcare services.
Also a shout-out to Dr. David Pencheon, Director of NHS Sustainable Development Unit. He is creating awareness of greater sustainability within the NHS in England. We are big supporters of the SDU, and we try to do our bit as online medical records and consultations reduce our customers’ carbon footprint.
We are excited that Dr. Mohammad Al-Ubaydli, founder and CEO of PKB, has also made it to the list.
While others talk about the importance of giving patients access to their medical records, Dr Al-Ubaydli gets on and does it. Patients Know Best is now used in 40 hospitals in the UK, and by patients and clinicians in seven other countries.
