Speakers: Andrew Auerbach, MD

Andrew Auerbach is Professor of Medicine in Residence at UCSF and Director of Research Division of Hospital Medicine. Andy did his medical residency training at Yale New Haven Hospital and a fellowship in General Internal Medicine at Harvard where he was trained in clinical epidemiology, multivariable modeling, cost-effectiveness analysis, and health services research. He joined the faculty at UCSF as the nation's first clinician-researcher primarily focused on the hospitalist model in 1998. His research at UCSF has primarily focused on assessments of patient outcomes in different systems of care, with a special interest in the hospitalist model and perioperative medicine, with a special focus on quality measurement and implementation research.

Andy is the Co-PI of the Hospital Medicine Reengineering Network and site PI for a number of multicenter trials in quality improvement where UCSF is a key participant. He also teaches in the Training in Clinical Research program at UCSF, as well as co-directing the Primary Care Research fellowship. Finally, Andy is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Hospital Medicine, the flagship peer-reviewed journal in Hospital Medicine.

He is board-certified in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology, and Clinical Informatics, maintains an active clinical practice in Endocrinology, and was an inaugural inductee as a Fellow of the American Medical Informatics Association (FAMIA). Dr. Neinstein believes in empowering patients and physicians to access, share, understand, and use health information in day-to-day care, including outside of traditional healthcare settings. He has devoted his informatics career to advancing health policy and creating tools that facilitate connected, collaborative care as well as ecosystems that enable integration of innovative software into care delivery workflows. He helped lead UCSF's Epic EHR implementation and optimization and was on the founding team of Tidepool, a non-profit that creates open-source software to empower people with diabetes. At the UCSF CDHI, he leads a multi-disciplinary team focused on digital transformation of care delivery at UCSF, development and commercialization of novel technologies, and enablement of the national digital health ecosystem. He majored in American Studies at Northwestern University, graduated Alpha Omega Alpha from the Keck School of Medicine of USC, and did his Internal Medicine residency and Endocrinology fellowship at UCSF.

Raman's work centers on the design and implementation of information technology applications in health care. He has an appointment in the Center for Digital Health Innovation (CDHI) where he works primarily on CareWeb, a project to transform clinical communication within and between providers and their teams. He is also currently on the ASCENT project where he is codirecting an effort to improve followup for subcritical lab and radiology results in a safety net setting. He spends the majority of his time on the APeX Electronic Health Record (EHR) team, where he works to implement EHR modifications and customizations for UCSF Health as well as to make the EHR more interoperable through the Digital Diagnostics and Therapeutics Committee, which he co-chairs.
