HIMSS is pleased to announce that Dr. Allan J. Hamilton, medical consultant to the TV dramas “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice,” will give the keynote address at the BrandHIT Marketing Summit on June 15 – 16 at The Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.
The keynote, titled What Can We Learn from How Hollywood Portrays Healthcare Personas, or How Did We Get from “Marcus Welby” to “House” in Fifty Years?, will cover how and why the depiction of doctors and medicine has evolved so dramatically since the 1950s — and how health IT marketers can use TV writers’ storytelling techniques to engage with customers and stand out from competitors.
A professor of Neurosurgery at University of Arizona, Dr. Hamilton holds additional professorships in the Departments of Psychology, Radiation Oncology and the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is the author of “The Scalpel and the Soul: Encounters with Surgery, the Supernatural, and the Healing Power of Hope.”
