Peter Winkelstein, MS, MD, MBA

Dr. Winkelstein’s first Master’s degree was in Astronomy, after which he applied his computer and analytic skills to the financial industry as a “quant,” programming computer models to trade commodities. Finding this life less than fulfilling, he turned to medicine in order to get away from computers. It didn’t work. He now has over 20 years of experience in medical Informatics in a variety of settings. In addition to the implementation and optimization of electronic health records, he focuses on data analytics and the contribution of technology to provider burnout. He currently serves as the Executive Director of the University at Buffalo’s Institute for Healthcare Informatics, VP and CMIO of Kaleida Health, the largest healthcare provider in Western New York, is immediate past president of the Kaleida Health Medical/Dental Staff and is a Professor of Pediatrics at the University at Buffalo.

Afternoon Keynote: Physician Engagement

Foster the Digital Culture Necessary to Improve Physician Engagement and Fuel Better Data Capture and Analytics

As the primary connection with patients, physicians must diagnose and make the necessary treatment decisions. Physicians therefore play a fundamental role in the capture and use of relevant patient data. But with the addition of extra computer related duties and the added risk of burnout, it is essential to create physician buy-in without overtaxing them. Leave with innovative solutions to:

  • Build systems that will improve physician workflows and treatment options (from private practices to hospitals)
  • Understand how physicians make treatment decisions to better integrate their practices into your data systems
  • Keep track of ongoing issues in order to simplify the process of data collection and utilization for physicians and other administrators

Improve your data analytics program by enhancing physician engagement.
