Dr Ted Adams (HF 2014-15 ) MBChB MSc MRCOG FFFMLM undertook his fellowship at Kaiser Permanente’s Care Management Institute in Oakland, California. As an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Ted spent the year fully involved with the policy and improvement teams at Kaiser Permanente, translating some policy from the Affordable Care Act into measurable clinical policies and examining “joy in work” for clinicians. The Harkness project was centred around patient-centred care in maternity services. Ted wanted to put his learning into practice and maintained his clinical and operational focus on his return to the UK. He was inspired by the effort Kaiser Permanente put into its electronic health system and is now the Chief Clinical Information Officer at his NHS trust in the North West of England. In addition to his NHS role, he works for Kaleidoscope Health and Care where he can indulge his love of practical health policy. He is also a trustee of the Royal Medical Benevolent Fund and Chief Medical Officer of the UK’s Pony Club.
