How Seattle Children’s Creates Equity and Diversity Through Digital Transformation

Featuring Dr. Zafar Chaudry,
Chief Digital Officer & Chief Information Officer, Seattle Children's


Dr. Zafar Chaudry, industry award-winner and Chief Digital Officer & CIO of Seattle Children’s Healthcare, shares his belief that digital healthcare executives are in the business of patients, not in the business of IT. The plans and tools Seattle Children’s implements must be available to all patients from all segments, or they won’t be of much value.

Not everyone has the latest iPhone let alone a mobile phone, so Dr. Chaudry sets out on a mission day after day to enable all patients to access new technologies. Join us as Chaudry shares best practices on how to bring digital solutions from ideation to execution, and the secret behind Seattle Children’s historically low 8% turnover rate.
