Dr. Mike Brooks
Chief Medical Officer, PatientSource
Dr Michael Brooks is a both a senior Emergency Medicine doctor and a computer programmer. He witnessed many harrowing medical errors as a junior doctor and vowed to use his programming skills to fix the patient safety problems that were endemic in medicine. Mike's approach is to give doctors and nurses extremely easy to use software for managing their patients which makes their lives easier. They then gain the benefit of computerised checks and alerts which makes their patients safer. Mike still works a week a month in the Emergency Department, and leads the software development team at PatientSource.
