Dr. Nathanson’s career has been focused on creating computerized solutions to this end. He is the architect and developer of the application “ED Dashboard,” a software program that integrates data from the ED and other hospital departments in order to give clinicians the ability to better communicate, monitor the department, improve patient safety and streamline the delivery of emergency care. This technology and the positive effect it has on patient care have been featured on CNN, in Newsweek and in other national publications. Dr. Nathanson has been programming for more than 20 years and possesses a bachelor’s degree in computer medical science from Boston University.
