Collapse Overview 
Collapse overview
I lead a team of biomedical informatics researchers, physicians, computer scientists and students focused on improving the way that electronic health records work. Our team concentrates on clinical decision support systems and data mining of extremely large clinical datasets. We have a particular interest in improving clinical problem lists, using health information technology to prevent instances of medical malpractice and patient harm and ensuring electronic health records operate safely. Our group receives funding from the NIH's National Library of Medicine and National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and a variety of other foundations and groups.

In addition to research, I also direct the introductory courses in biomedical informatics at Harvard (BMI 701 and 702), and teach medical students during the January term.
