Matt Rafalski, MD, FAAFP, FAMIA

Room 1

Medicine increases in complexity even as more tools are at our disposal to improve the health and lives of the patients that we care for. This session presents an overview of the role that clinical informatics play to allow health systems to innovate in meeting the quadruple aim of the health care system. From making EHRs more intuitive to increasing provider efficiency, designing mission centric quality plans to participating in value based contracting. Plans for starting basic or improving advanced informatics will be presented though the lens of personal faith and an FQHC organization that cares for inner city and rural populations.
