RE-ENGINEERING A HEALTHCARE SYSTEM
In my dual roles as Chief Medical Information Officer and a physician in the emergency department, I not only see the need but am in the position to help facilitate the proper delivery of safe, efficient and effective patient care for the doctors and nurses who work at my hospital.
As my hospital embarks on a $150M EMR project I am striving to create a seamless "system of care" where there is one chart, one patient and one system -- rather than living with the patchwork of care that currently exists.
My experience as a Physician and my training in Healthcare Systems Engineering, at Lehigh, puts me in the unique position of being capable of bridging the two worlds of Medicine and Engineering, bringing the best aspects of both to benefit the patient."
