Canadian M.D. recognized for speech recognition project

Stephen E. Rosenthal, MD Do you know many people that have both a degree in Medicine and a Masters in Informatics? Not to mention from the same prestigious (McGill) University? Well, I only know one, and let me tell you, the guy knows what he is talking about when it comes to implementing new technology to improve healthcare practice.

No wonder Dr. Rosenthal was named Healthcare Innovator of the Year by HealthImaging & IT Magazine in recognition for his role in implementing key technology projects (including PDA-based, wireless speech recognition) at the Sir Mortimer B. Davis Jewish General Hospital in Montreal, Quebec, where he holds the positions of Associate Director of the Emergency Department and Director of Medical Informatics. Dr. Rosenthal is also an active member of the Canada Health Infoway advisory board and has advised the Ministère de la Santé et des Services Sociaux (Quebec Minister of Health) on the new standards for the Emergency Department.

Dr. Rosenthal regularly speaks at key industry seminars across North America and we will keep you informed of upcoming speaking engagements in this blog.
