Biographical

I have known I wanted to be in medicine since I was a young child. My mother was the medical director of the psychiatric hospital in Cambridge, Ohio, and my father, a practicing cardiologist. When asked if I planned to follow my parents’ in either administrative medicine or cardiology, my response was ‘neither;’ I had no interest in cardiology and wanted to be at the patient’s bedside.

My residency and fellowship projects involved the bibliometric analysis of scientific literature to identify citation classics and landmark trials in anesthesiology and critical care medicine. My mentor was impressed with how quickly I processed a literature search of an entire discipline into a single database with citation counts to identify the most referenced literature. During my critical care fellowship exit interview, my program director and long-time mentor encouraged me to pursue administrative medicine and healthcare information technology. My response was the same; I had an interest in neither. My plan was to stay at my patient’s bedside.

In pursuit of my plan to provide clinically excellent care, it was a pleasure to join the Department of Anesthesiology as an Assistant Professor Clinical at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center (OSUWMC) in June 2010 following postgraduate training. I completed certification by the American Board of Anesthesiologists in Anesthesiology and subspecialty certification in Critical Care Medicine. I had developed an interest in cardiopulmonary pathophysiology, completed a six-month fellowship in cardiac anesthesiology, and obtained certification by the National Board of Echocardiography in Advanced Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiography. My position at OSUWMC fit me perfectly as it complimented my expertise in and passion for both critical care and cardiovascular medicine.

Initially, my career was focused at the bedside with clinical duties in cardiac critical and anesthesia. My passion for cardiac critical care coupled with my mother’s mantra of “do you best and work hard” and my father’s of “work smart” fueled me to identify areas of care optimization. Starting a critical care service, I was often obtaining contents daily for routine procedures on the same patient rather then spending time at the bedside. I decided we needed an ICU consent form. Being a new attending, I did not realize what would be involved, but I was determined. Within my first year of practice, I wrote the consent and policy, met with legal and ICU leadership, and finally got approval at the Medical Staff Administrative Committees (MSAC). I realized I could do this. This first clinical project was the catalyst for the remainder of my career as I became increasingly committed to developing a stronger infrastructure for our cardiac critical care patients.

I quickly realized that an ICU consent form was the least of our problems and started championing the entire cardiac critical care program. Consulting physicians provided the critical care services for the cardiac surgery program previous to 2010, but I was not happy with being a “consultant.” When I joined OSUWMC in 2010, I was one of two dedicated cardiac intensivists and devoted 62-86% of my total clinical duties on the cardiac surgical critical service. Through leadership that involve passion, humility, altruism, and a desire for clinical excellence, we transformed the cardiac critical care service from a consulting service to a co-management understanding with the cardiac surgeons to a program today of eight anesthesiology critical care attendings providing 24/7 care.

After constructing the infrastructure for a cardiac critical care program, I led the creation of a growing and successful multi-disciplinary Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS) program in collaboration with the surgical director. OSUWMC is one of just over 200 centers internationally that offers this complex and intensive treatment of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) to patients by providing total cardiac and/or pulmonary support for days to weeks. To do this, blood is circulated using a mechanical pump outside the body through a modified heart-lung machine. Patients that would not have the chance to survive in a traditional ICU are given a chance to recover from their shock-state without developing multi-system organ failure.

As we were developing the ECLS program, OSUWMC implemented a new inpatient electronic medical record system using Epic Systems in 2011. I strongly believe that technology is the vehicle to optimizing efficiency in care delivery and patient safety. But I also realize this requires balancing the workflow and the desires of the clinician or end user with the technologic solutions while keeping the end-product or the patient in mind. Through leadership and rapport built with members of the multidisciplinary cardiac surgical program—including surgeons, consulting physicians, nurses, and pharmacists—I was able to frame the workflow in cardiac surgical critical care and optimize the electronic health system infrastructure from clinical documentation to computerized physician order entry to rounding workflow. In July 2014, I was appointed Medical Director of Information Technology in the Ross Heart Hospital.

Years after my mentor had clearly identified my strengths in leadership and information technology, I am following his intuition and building a career around clinical excellence and IT. I apply these interests in education, in research, and clinical service. In education, I build digital solutions to enhance bedside teaching and developed two online curricula that have received national attention for their novelty and efficacy. In research, I use IT to create registries in the domain of critical care that generate outcome research, optimize care delivery, and improve patient care. Clinically, I use leadership to drive quality improvements in patient outcomes that can be visualized as a result of my technology innovations. I integrate my expertise in critical care and understanding of information technology to streamline clinician workflow and ultimately improve patient care.

Through my leadership with the ECLS program and clinical excellence in the care of cardiac ICU patients, I was appointed Medical Director of Ross Surgical Critical Care services in July 2014. Most recently, I was appointed Director of Anesthesiology Critical Care and now lead nine attending physicians in the delivery of care for four ICU services, in conjunction with the division of Surgical Critical Care. These clinical administrative responsibilities are 40% of my time, with 60% dedicated to direct patient care. While previously resistant, I am now proud to be following my mother’s and father’s footsteps as I build a career in administrative medicine and clinical medicine focused in cardiovascular critical care. I am proud of my clinical excellence that has advanced educations, research, and clinical services with academic products of medical center national recognitions, but most importantly, improved bedside patient care.
