Demetrius Maraganore

NorthShore University HealthSystem

“If we live long enough, we will all get Alzheimer’s,” says Demetrius Maraganore, 54, director of the Center for Brain Health at NorthShore Neurological Institute. “We need to change the paradigm of neurology so that we’re not only managing the disease, but preventing it.” At the center, which opened in June, specialists assess patients’ risk factors for Alzheimer’s and develop individualized programs to protect against the disease. Maraganore, one of the most cited experts on Parkinson’s disease (his other “obsession”), also champions the use of electronic medical records and digital health tools to track and share best practices for treatment of brain disorders. “Most doctors hate electronic medical records, but it’s the marketplace where all interactions and transactions in health care occur,” he says.
