About Wilton Levine, MD

I am an anesthesiologist in the Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital and I serve as the Medical Director for the Operating Rooms.  My primary interests involve patient safety, operating room efficiency, staff satisfaction and resident teaching and education.

My research focuses on making physician work and patient care safer and easier through the application of technology.  I have developed several patented technologies including the Codonics Safe Label System for medication safety (www.safelabel.comwww.codonics.com) and a new oxygen regulator to help users understand the time remaining in an oxygen cylinder.  I am currently working on a database to improve medical school CV management for physicians.
