Pritpal Tamber Biography

The former Physician Editor of TEDMED and the Founder of the Creating Health Collaborative, Dr Pritpal S. Tamber hails from the vibrant health innovation scene.

How does innovation get traction in clinical practice?

As a keynote speaker who believes that the NHS needs to be radically reimagined, Pritpal stimulates a dialogue around society, business and health in light of recent digital technologies accelerating the field.

He uses his sharp eye to identify clinically credible ideas with the potential to positively impact the quality and cost of care, especially for those communities already enduring poor outcomes.

The former Physician Editor of TEDMED and the Founder of the Creating Health Collaborative, Dr Pritpal S. Tamber hails from the vibrant health innovation scene.

How does innovation get traction in clinical practice?

As a keynote speaker who believes that the NHS needs to be radically reimagined, Pritpal stimulates a dialogue around society, business and health in light of recent digital technologies accelerating the field.

He uses his sharp eye to identify clinically credible ideas with the potential to positively impact the quality and cost of care, especially for those communities already enduring poor outcomes.

While working for TEDMED (TED’s dedicated health event), Pritpal reviewed over 1600 innovations for the stage and helped select and shape the 40 talks that made it into the programme.

Pritpal upholds the belief that, instead of waiting for people to get sick before treating them (a supply-based service), we should strive to understand of health beyond biological measures and consider what people and their communities really want (a demand-based service), taking into account safety, physical functioning, financial security, emotional security, nourishing relationships, and a sense of control over one’s life.

To tackle the issue, Pritpal founded the Creating Health Collaborative, a group of entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who have identified 'the 11 principles for creating health', a list that helps to define this new way of approaching the challenges facing the future of health.

The Collaborative’s membership include individuals from Kaiser Permanente, Mayo Clinic, the California Endowment, FSG, HealthPartners, MIT, the Healthy Neighborhoods Equity Fund, and the Democracy Collaborative.

Together with fellow members of the Collaborative, Pritpal has co-edited the book, Communities Creating Health, an examination of what would happen if the design, implementation and evaluation of health interventions became something we did with communities rather than to them.

Moreover, he is the former Medical Director of Map of Medicine, a company that produces 'clinical pathways' designed to improve the flow of patients through health care systems. The pathways were one of the first forms of content designed to interoperate with electronic medical records.

Priptal is also the former Editorial Director for Medicine for BioMed Central, the company that disrupted academic publishing by making open access commercially sustainable; before that, he was an editor at the BMJ, where he started his career.

Few people truly understand the crisis facing the future of health, and even fewer are able to communicate it. Pritpal is one such person.

His speaking topics include:

-          What is true population health?

-          The 11 principles for creating health

-          Reconceiving the social determinants

-          The three parts to the future of health

-          What workplace wellness should really be
