The CXO Roundtable will be co-hosted by Bridget Duffy, MD, chief medical officer of Vocera and Arnold Milstein, MD, MPH, professor of medicine and director of the Stanford Clinical Excellence Research Center (CERC). Featured keynotes include Michael Roizen, MD, chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic Health System and award-winning author of the YOU series of books co-authored with Dr. Mehmet Oz; Amir Rubin, president and chief executive officer at Stanford Hospital and Clinics with a proven track record of driving innovations in patient experience; and Linda Avey, the co-founder and chief executive officer of Curious, Inc., a data discovery platform helping individuals answer questions about their wellbeing through personal data aggregation and discovery. Avey also co-founded 23andMe, a leading personal genetics company.
"It is a privilege to be part of an organization whose mission is to define for the nation the standards of an optimal patient and staff experience. Our partnership with Stanford's Clinical Excellence Research Center will enable this network of CXOs to go faster to put science behind these innovations so they may become the new standards of care," Dr. Duffy said.
The CXO Roundtable will also spotlight and honor thought leaders who will share personal and professional experiences that have inspired them to develop innovations that are transforming care delivery. Hollye Jacobs, RN, a breast cancer survivor, award-winning blogger and bestselling author will participate in the CXO Roundtable Maverick Panel. Jacobs started The Silver Pen blog to discuss her journey with breast cancer and recently published the New York Times bestselling book, The Silver Lining. A pediatric and adult palliative care nurse and social worker, Jacobs takes a holistic approach to writing about breast cancer with style, a sense of humor and silver linings.
