Zachary Grinspan   Assistant Professor of Healthcare Policy and Research

I am interested in how health information technology can improve care for children and adults with neurologic diseases. I carry out my research primarily through the Center for Healthcare Informatics and Policy. My current projects include:

* Health Information Exchange and Epilepsy. NYCLIX (New York CLinical Information eXchange) is a Health Information Exchange network which links clinical data from seven Manhattan hospitals. I am working with colleagues here at Weill Cornell, at Mount Sinai, and at Columbia to test machine learning algorithms to predict high emergency department users among patients with epilepsy within the NYCLIX network.

* NeuroPICU Dashboard. I work with a multidisciplinary team in a partnership with Technion University in Haifa, Israel to develop a multimodal information display. We aim to integrate cardio-pulmonary physiology, neurophysiology, EEG, medications, and laboratory values into a unified dashboard to assist ongoing care.

* Health Information Exchange Usage by Specialists. I am developing survey instruments to better understand the awareness and use of health information exchange technologies among specialists in the state of New York.

Medical students and residents are always welcome to contact me to join ongoing projects, or to develop new ones.
