Brophy Portrait about eHealth

“I think ehealth will quickly become a very important part of Iowa’s health care system. This tool will give us the opportunity to keep patients in their communities, seeing their own doctors, while offering access to the more than 1,000 physicians and specialists at the University of Iowa. Who benefits? Patients, their doctors, their families, our communities….in fact, all Iowans.”
Patrick Brophy, MD, medical director and assistant vice president for the Signal Center
