At Mobile World Congress last week in Barcelona, I had the great fortune to interview…

Dr. Josep M. Picas. M.D, at the University of Barcelona. Diploma at the ESADE Business School of Barcelona. He is the President of the European Association of Healthcare IT Managers (Brussels). From 2009 he is the CIO of the Hospital de St. Pau in Barcelona, Spain. He began his career in 1974 as a medical doctor; he was appointed Director of the Hospital de l’Esperança, in Barcelona, in 1979. From 1982 to 2004 he was the Director of PAMEM, a public HMO operating in Barcelona. Director of the Primary Care of Barcelona City, from 2004 to 2007 and CIO at the Hospital del Mar in Barcelona in 2008.

It is a high complexity hospital which dates back six centuries, making it the oldest hospital in Spain. Healthcare is centred on Barcelona but extends to the rest of Catalonia. The centre plays a prominent role in Spain and is internationally renowned.
