Albert Chan has blended his passion for medicine and technology at Sutter Health, one of the largest healthcare systems in the U.S. While he continues to care for patients as a family physician, Dr. Chan uses his background in biomedical informatics—he helped launch one of the nation’s first integrated online personal health record systems—to apply the latest digital advancements to medicine and improve access to care. In recognition of his career as an innovator and tireless patient advocate, Dr. Chan received the 2014 Epic PACAcademy Award (“Physician of the Year”) and was recently named to the Fulbright Specialist Roster. He also serves as a mentor for Sutter’s startup initiatives and the Heritage Group, a healthcare venture fund. During his fellowship to Brazil and South Korea, Chan met with healthcare and non-healthcare entities to explore how to facilitate innovation and develop strategic partnerships at scale, ultimately informing a learning lab which aims to transform the patient experience of receiving care.
