Oxford University Professor Trish Greenhalgh asks:
Why do so many well-intentioned technology programmes fail? #WhatCouldGoWrong?
Who remembers a failed technology project in healthcare?
Why do some programmes become “bigger than Ben Hur” with all the theatrics of a Hollywood production – and then fail at the box office?
If you have been part of a health technology program in need of resuscitation – you will sympathise and learn from Prof Trish Greenhalgh’s breakfast presentation: Why do health IT systems fail?

As co-Director of the Interdisciplinary Research In Health Sciences (IRIHS) unit, Trish leads a programme of research at the interface between social sciences and medicine, with strong emphasis on the organisation and delivery of health services. Her research seeks to celebrate and retain the traditional and humanistic aspects of medicine while also embracing the unparalleled opportunities of contemporary science and technology to improve health outcomes and relieve suffering.
Three particular interests are the health needs and illness narratives of minority and disadvantaged groups; the introduction of technology-based innovations in healthcare; and the complex links (philosophical and empirical) between research, policy and practice.
Trish is the author of over 300 peer-reviewed publications and 16 textbooks. She was awarded the OBE for Services to Medicine by Her Majesty the Queen in 2001 and made a Fellow of the UK Academy of Medical Sciences in 2014.
