Eugene Kim, MD, JD, MS
Eugene trained in anesthesiology at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, including his final year as chief resident. He has had a lifelong interest in computers and improving the health of populations and individuals. His first experience with clinical informatics was assessing medical image retrieval systems as an undergraduate summer research associate at Oregon Health and Science University’s Department of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology in Portland, Oregon. Prior to medical school, Eugene attended the New York University School of Law concentrating on health law and policy, including projects for the State of New York. He is a member of the New York State Bar Association. He also has degrees in public health and medical physiology. As a clinical informatics fellow, he is excited to have the opportunity to pursue more formal training in computer science and management. He looks forward to applying his unique background and viewpoint to improve patient care, particularly in the perioperative setting.

Susannah Kisvarday, MD, MPH
Susannah trained in internal medicine and pediatrics at Geisinger Medical Center in Pennsylvania. After graduation, she remained at Geisinger as a faculty med-peds primary care physician. She served as Assistant Program Director for the Geisinger Med-Peds Residency and Medical Director for Bloomsburg University. Throughout her career, she has been heavily vested in quality and process improvement. She has also done work in clinician efficiency training, EHR use optimization, and EHR improvements to reduce clinician workload. Susannah is interested in using clinical informatics training to leverage information technology for quality and process improvement across health systems while maintaining a focus on user-centered design leading to decreased cognitive load and improved clinician experience. She also hopes to hone her data analysis and visualization skills in a way that can inform and translate to tangible population health initiatives. She aspires to become a leader in healthcare through innovative approaches to healthcare delivery that can directly impact the lives of clinicians and patients.

Dan Kats headshot

Dan Kats, MD
Dan trained in pediatrics at the Massachusetts General Hospital for Children and is originally from the Greater Boston area. While in Medical School at Case Western Reserve University, he had his first experience in informatics under Dr. Yasir Tarabichi, with whom he studied lung cancer prediction and racial and socioeconomic disparities in lung cancer screening. During residency, Dan focused on clinical decision support, specifically with safe and effective ordering of medications, and improving hospital communication systems. Looking forward toward fellowship and beyond, Dan hopes to continue developing clinical decision tools, as well as studying how to optimize pain and symptom management, especially in the oncology and sickle cell disease populations. Outside of informatics, Dan works with the Down Syndrome Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital to study how various countries support people with Down syndrome in their communities.
