I am a Physician and General Internist. I currenly live in Chile and am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. I am also an Affiliate Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education at the University of Washington in Seattle.

I take care of outpatients a few times every week but most of my time is devoted to Biomedical Informatics practice and research. On the practice side, I am the Chief Medical Information Officer at Red de Salud UC - CHRISTUS healthcare network where we are implementing an institution-wide EMR, a new Lab Information System and Clinical Data Warehouse for our 2 hospitals and 7 outpatient clinics.

On the research side, I focus on developing methods to improve the re-utilization of routinelly collected clinical data for clinical and translational research, quality improvement and public health. Yo can see more of this one my research page.
