Collapse overview
Adam Landman, MD, MS, MIS, MHS, is an emergency physician and Chief Information Officer at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH). He worked as a technology consultant for Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) and subsequently pursued graduate studies in information systems and health care policy at Carnegie Mellon University. After medical school, he trained in emergency medicine at UCLA and completed the RWJ Foundation Clinical Scholars fellowship in health services research, where he worked on qualitative and quantitative studies on the adoption of health information technology (HIT) in the emergency department (ED) and prehospital settings.

Dr. Landman is interested in the innovative application of information technology to improve health care delivery. He led an emergency department (ED) information systems modernization project, a three-year $7 million custom software development project to move BWH ED clinicians from paper-based to electronic documentation. Currently, he is responsible for clinical oversight of the implementation and integration of a new hospital laboratory system, as well as multiple projects related to a new enterprise EHR implementation, and health information innovation programs. Dr. Landman has received grant funding for several research projects, including: 1) Building and piloting a mobile app for capturing and storing clinical images; 2) Using high fidelity medical simulation centers to evaluate HIT in a controlled, safe environment; and 3) Building an improved electronic medication administration and reconciliation (e-MAR) system.

Dr. Landman welcomes the opportunity to work with students and residents interested in clinical and research informatics.
