My work in medicine and medicalinformatics is the product of three discrete experiences throughout myprofessional development: (1) my didactic electrical and biomedical engineeringeducation, (2) my training and expertise in internal medicine, and (3) mymedical informatics fellowship and ongoing research.Theseexperiences provide me with a unique vantage point from which to bothinnovate and practice.
My primary area of interest is finding creative ways to increase the effectiveness of the clinical systems that we rely upon so heavily. For example, the FastTrack interventions, aunique approach to non-visit and population-based clinical care, are designed to help redefine rather than simplysupport traditional models of care.
Ihave led a team ofclinicians and developers to create a system that enables the MGH TransplantCenter to capture and report on clinical and process data on a per-graft basis to streamline clinical workflow, simplify regulatory reporting andimprove clinical outcomes.
I serve as Assistant Director of MGH's biomedical informatics fellowshiptraining program where I take an active role in teaching and mentoring.
I find practicing medicine incredibly rewarding and essential to my MGH life. Icontinue to care for some of the same patients that met duringmy internship year. We have grown and continue to grow together aspatient and doctor.
There is animportant synergy between my medical practice and my research efforts: Mywork as a practicing physician informs my ability to develop and improve ourclinical systems. These systems, in turn, help me to providepatients with the safest and highest quality care.
