Use of technology in healthcare
Dr. Andrew T. Reisner, attending physician at the MGH ED, received his undergraduate engineering degree at Stanford University prior to receiving his M.D. from Harvard Medical School. He completed his residency with the Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency Program (HAEMR) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and MGH. He is an assistant professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School. Since 2001, he has held an appointment as research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Between, 2003-2011, he held an appointment as research scientist with the United States Army Medical Research and Material Command (USAMRMC).
Dr. Reisner’s academic focus involves the integration of technology into clinical practice. Over the past decade, he served as the physician liaison between MGH ED and the Emergency Department Information Systems team, with notable accomplishments including a modernization project and the development of an electronic documentation solution for physicians. He has served on the MGH Acute Care documentation committee, and currently serves as the co-chair of the MGH /critical Care Center Informatics committee.
Dr. Resiner first worked in the Carlos Otis Medical Clinic during his rotation as a Harvard medical student in the 1990’s, where he learned much from the clinic’s excellent nursing staff and its doctors including Dr. William MacAusland, former president of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Since completing his residency training over a decade ago, he has been a regular caregiver at Stratton Mountain, and has watched with delight as his children have gone from Little-Cub preschoolers to teenage terrain-park aficionados.
