Health Information Exchange; Clinical Decision Support; Social Meia to Inform Emergency Preparedness and Response
Dr. Genes's areas of research include health information exchange, clinical decision support, and using social media to inform emergency preparedness and response.
Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
