Anesthesiologist Has a Different Perspective on Distracted Doctoring

The concept of “distracted doctoring” has been getting a lot of national media attention in recent months as doctors, nurses and other health professionals increasingly use mobile devices in the hospital environment.  Some health experts take the position that using mobile technology in the hospital environment compromises patient care.  Dr. Keley John Booth takes a different view, described in the white paper, Digital Dexterity or Distracted Doctoring.  Dr. Booth will be available for on-site or telephone interviews at the Healthcare Information and Managerial Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference held Feb. 20-24, at the Venetian Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. To schedule an interview, call 888-415-8616 or email press [at]
