Digital Medicine

Grupo Ars XXI de Communicacion SL to publish Spanish edition of Digital Medicine

In the early fall 2005, Grupo Ars XXI will publish the Spanish language translation of Jeff Goldsmith's Digital Medicine: Implications for Healthcare Leaders.  This translation has been a collaboration between the author and Ignacio Riesgo, Healthcare Practice Leader for PriceWaterHouseCoopers consultants in Spain.  This project has taken eight months, and  has been materially assisted by Trevor Goldsmith, who is a doctoral candidate in Anthropology at the University of Chicago studying in Barcelona.   Mr. Goldsmith will be visiting Madrid in the later fall to introduce the book, and advocate comprehensive IT investment in Spain's health sector.  Digital Medicine's English language edition published by Health Administration Press is in its third printing. 

Goldsmith collaborates with Microsoft Corporation in Collaborative Health Initiative

Beginning in the fall of 2004,  Jeff Goldsmith has worked with the Healthcare vertical of Microsoft Corporation to advocate a collaborative model of healthcare applications development using Microsoft tools.  Collaborative Health presented a unique vision of the future of Healthcare IT for diverse audiences in eight cities from coast to coast. Collaborative Health is a platform-neutral method of creating consumer, physician and healthcare worker applications which improve service, save time and money and facilitate communication and collaboration in the care process.  Healthcare providers have deep loyalties to their healthcare IT vendors.  Rather than competing with those vendors, Microsoft has focused, with consulting partners, building custom applications leveraging Windows functionality on top of top of enterprise clinical systems.
