Description of Other Expertise

I serve as Director of Informatics for the Department of Radiation Oncology. I have a technical background in computer science, clinical training in internal medicine, and subspecialty board certification in clinical informatics, which is my primary career focus. I have expertise in electronic health record technology and helped lead the implementation of an ambulatory EHR system throughout all clinical practices in the University of Pennsylvania Health System. My current areas of focus include data mining from clinical information systems, database design, clinical data warehouse development, and incident learning systems for quality management. I also serve as co-chair of the Information Technology Infrastructure Committee for the National Radiation Oncology Registry.
