Hello, I’m Christopher Libby. I am an emergency physician and clinical informatics fellow with a passion for improving healthcare delivery. Technology has tremendous potential to improve the delivery of care, but only if it is skilfully utilized by well trained clinicians.

Since I realized I wanted to enter the field of medicine, I knew that I wanted to find more cost effective, evidence based approaches to delivering higher quality care. I have experience in healthcare information technology, quality improvement, and advocacy.

I am currently in fellowship at Cedars Sinai for Clinical Informatics and am a board eligible emergency physician in the Greater Los Angeles Area where I practice clinically. I also dabble in telemedicine both syncronous and asynchronous. While I spend a lot of time studying, I also work on web development, EM/CI research, and advocacy

I have extensive experience in healthcare informatics with knowledge of HL7 and CDA standards. I have done custom programming for the front and back ends of Allscripts/Epic, ETL design, data warehousing in SQL Server, custom programming and application development, integrations using Orion Rhapsody, Bridges, and ConnectR, and conversions between EHR vendors.
