Phil Johnson, M.D., Advisory Board Member

The son of American missionaries, Doctor Phil Johnson spent his childhood in the Himalayan Mountains and Sindh deserts of Pakistan where his parents focused on providing education, rural development and healthcare. His interest in healthcare grew from there and led to him pursuing a degree in medicine, which he received from Northwestern University. After an internship and residency in family practice at the University of Arizona Health Sciences Center, Dr. Johnson practiced in underserved areas of Arizona for Indian Health Services. In 1992, he became a Fulbright Scholar at Aga Khan University Medical School in Karachi, Pakistan, where he set up postgraduate training programs for the university. Dr. Johnson returned to the United States in 1994 and began work as an emergency physician at Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center in Show Low, Arizona. In 2003, he was named the hospital’s Emergency Room Medical Director and Chairman of the Emergency Department. Dr. Johnson shares his expertise with medical students at Midwestern University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Glendale, Arizona, serving as a Clinical Assistant Professor.

Dr. Johnson holds multiple certifications in advanced life support for both adults and pediatric patients. He has spoken at national and international conferences in the United States, Canada and Pakistan and is a published author of clinical literature.

His desire to provide the best care for his patients was the motive behind the founding of EMDTransfer in 2007, a cloud-based service that provides distant specialists with critical patients’ medical images. This speeds up the decision-making process as to whether a patient needs to be transferred to a hospital that provides a higher level of care or remain at the original facility. Unnecessary patient transfers add more layers of cost to the healthcare system, deprive community hospitals of needed revenue, and are an inconvenient burden to patients and their families. In late 2011, GlobalMed purchased EMDTransfer and added Dr. Johnson to its medical Advisory Board.
