This article was originally published in Clinica
This issue’s People Profile focuses on Glyn Hayes, president of the British Computer Society’s (BCS) healthcare division. Sometimes the word “pioneer” is used loosely, to mean an enterprising spirit. But Dr Hayes can be described as a true forerunner – of designing and using computer technology for healthcare. In the 1970s, when doctors were keen to explore IT for practice administration, Dr Hayes realised its potential to transform the delivery of healthcare.
