Alan Pitt, M.D., is a Professor at the Barrow Neurological Institute, one of the country’s premier centers of excellence for neuroscience. He has degrees from Stanford University (B.A 83) and the University of Arizona (M.D 88). He did postgraduate training in Internal Medicine, Neurology, Radiology and Neuroradiology. Over the past two decades, Dr. Pitt has worked at the nexus of computers and medicine, looking for better ways to stitch together our fragmented care system. He passionately believes that by putting the patient in front of the right person, the patients fear and anxiety (and that of loved ones, the nurse, or generalist) can be mitigated by the reassurance such contact provides. This approach avoids needless tests, transfers, and worry.
In his efforts to transform healthcare, Dr. Pitt focuses on cloud-based solutions leveraging messaging and collaboration with sustainable business models. Dr. Pitt was the healthcare representative to the Digital Arizona Council, a group organized by the State of Arizona’s CIO. He is an adjunct professor at the ASU College of Nursing and Health Innovation and the University of Arizona College of Medicine/Phoenix.
In addition to his clinical responsibilities, in 2014 Dr. Pitt was invited to serve as CMO for Avizia, a global provider of telehealth services. In 2011 he was awarded a $100,000 innovation grant from Dignity Health for (Mi)hospital, a novel cloud-based system for patient engagement. Dr. Pitt has been an invited speaker at the state and national level on issues related to telehealth and patient engagement.
