Description

Are There Easy Remedies for Health-Service Relics (Such As Medical Homes and Targeted Intensive Management to Avoid Costly Utilization)?

John Wasson, MD
Active Emeritus Professor of Medicine and Community and Family Medicine
Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine


Dr. John Wasson is an Emeritus, Distinguished Professor of Medicine as well as Community and Family Medicine, and a former Herman O. West Professor of Geriatrics at Dartmouth Medical School. At Dartmouth, he has led a number of programs including outpatient services at the Veterans Administration, the Center for the Aging, and the Dartmouth-Northern New England Primary Care Research Network. He was also a national co-director of the Institute for HealthCare Improvement Idealized Office Practice and IMPACT projects.

His current area of interest is in personal information and communication technologies, and he is particularly interested in the development and testing of HowsYourHealth.org, which is a family of health IT tools to improve communication and health care quality by patients, doctors' offices, and communities.

In 2006 he received an award as "pioneer for practice-based research" from the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research, and his HowsYourHealth.org web-tools are now used nationwide to improve communication and health care quality by patients, doctors' offices, and communities. Additionally, since 2014, Dr. Wasson has been working with many groups and organizations to increase personal and professional Health Confidence (and the use of the What Matters Index) so that everyone can say “I am very confident that I can manage and control most of my health problems and concerns."
