NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Emergency Medicine Business Intelligence, Inc. (EMBI) has announced that Steven J. Davidson, MD, MBA, FACEP a 35-year veteran of Emergency Medicine and recognized leader in health care informatics joined EMBI as Chief Medical Officer in which role he will lead the EMBI Medical Advisory Board.
Dr. Davidson will continue serving as Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Informatics Officer at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. where he was Founding Chair of Emergency Medicine, 1995-2010. Trained in Emergency Medicine's earliest days, Dr. Davidson has subsequently engaged nearly all aspects of emergency medicine. His work with leading thinkers in quality improvement drove his pursuit of an MBA at The University of Pennsylvania Wharton School, earned in 1989. Having accomplished much of his vision at Maimonides, he shared those principles in a monthly "Leadership Outlook" column from 2000-2004 in Emergency Medicine News and in other publications since.
"Dr. Davidson has joined EMBI because our solution implements and extends his vision of leading transformation informed by relevant measures of clinical, operational and financial performance. He appreciates how EMBI's solution turns silos of data into actionable information. Through the Medical Advisory Board he will lead, Dr. Davidson and his colleagues, will provide guidance to EMBI to ensure our solution stays focused on addressing the problems and meeting needs of their peers and the emergency departments they manage," says Scott Richards, EMBI's CEO and Co-Founder.
Davidson comments, "As the ED becomes a progressively more challenging environment for patients and practitioners alike, EMBI's simplified data management empowers those engaged ED leaders who are devoted to improving clinical, operational and financial performance while gaining the opportunity for improved service quality for patients and a more pleasant, effective working environment for practitioners and staff."
Jonathan Rothman, EMBI's CTO and Co-Founder comments, "We grew up in this space; starting at about the same time Dr. Davidson arrived in Brooklyn. Over the years we've had the honor of meeting and working with many Emergency Medicine leaders. Dr. Davidson stands out among them for his thought leadership, objective accomplishments and his development of Emergency Medicine leaders. We are excited he is joining our team and look forward to his contributions."
