    Dr. Jason Shapiro is Associate Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine, Director of the Department's Emergency Medicine Informatics Fellowship and Chief of the Division of Informatics.

    Dr. Shapiro's research focuses on evaluating health information technology, with a specific focus on health information exchange, investigating its impact on quality measurement, care coordination, resource utilization, health care costs, and provider satisfaction. Other areas of active interest include ED information system implementation evaluation, workflow integration strategies for health IT, public health, and biosurveillance.

    Dr. Shapiro has worked with Healthix (formerly NYCLIX), a health information exchange based in the downstate region of New York, since its inception in 2005, and serves as the Chair of the Healthix’s Clinical Advisory and Evaluation Committees

    Dr. Shapiro has had continuous federal grant support to pursue informatics research since 2004, and is currently funded by a five-year R01 award from the Agency for Health Research and Quality (AHRQ) entitled "Advancing Quality Measurement and Care Improvement with Health Information Exchange." This project, which began in May 2012, is developing a regionally-based measure for early ED returns, an important quality measure widely used in emergency medicine; and building a notification system to identify and enroll frequent ED users in case management to improve their access to care and reduce ED recidivism.

    Dr. Shapiro is a member of the American Medical Informatics Association, a Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians, and Chair-Elect of the ACEP Informatics Section.  He is also a standing member of AHRQ's Health Care Research Training Study Section and a Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine.
