Chief Health Informatics Officer, Deputy Physician in Chief
My role at MSK is to optimize clinical systems, set clinical systems strategy, design for user experience, and ensure quality and financial goals are met using innovative Informatics solutions. My teams are responsible for developing, implementing and evaluating next-generation Informatics solutions for precision oncology, cognitive support, team-based care, and patient engagement.
We are engaged in a new Digital Transformation journey at MSK as a key part of DigITs (Digital Informatics and Technology Solutions). We strive to achieve the Quad Aims for Value (Healthy Populations; Low Cost; High Quality; Excellent Provider Experience). Our overall goal is to support MSK’s mission, and to be leaders in the development and implementation of new Informatics solutions that impact quality cancer care and cancer research. We define Health Informatics as the study and application of people, processes and technology to improve healthcare value, as a function of quality, cost, and efficiency.
Informatics at MSK spans clinical, translational, population health, and consumer health informatics. We also oversee comparative analytics, value measurement, external reporting, and the Tumor Registry. Our two divisions (Health Informatics; Health Information Management), along with our collaborators at MSK, are engaged in a new way of working smarter with SAFe, Product Management, Design Thinking, and Digital Forensics. As part of DigITs, we are launching major new platforms to enable MSK’s digital transformation over the coming years.
