He is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases and an elected Fellow of the American College of Physicians. His career began with the clinical practice of Infectious Diseases followed by serving as a medical director with focus on quality measurement at Independence Blue Cross and work with Siemens Medical Solutions Health Services in EHR development leading to more detailed focus on electronic clinical quality measurement at National Quality Forum. Since then, he has been a consultant focusing on standards for clinical quality measurement and reporting and clinical decision support as well as their implementation. He is currently an elected co-chair of two HL7 Workgroups, Clinical Quality Information (CQI) addressing measurement standards and Cross-Group Projects addressing broadly focused standards such as US Core. He is also the elected Treasurer of HL7 International and active as co-chair of two HL7 re-envisioning task groups (ROI and Focus). Some current activities include standards support for CMS quality measurement initiatives, SME support for a CDC project expressing clinical opioid prescribing guidelines, and SME support for the Association of Immunization Registries of American (AIRA) and HIMSS Immunization Integration Program (IIP).
