Talks to Dr. Peter Fleischut on Big Data

Dr. Peter M. Fleischut, associate professor of Anesthesiology, is featured as the cover story in the current issue of The journal article, titled “Big Data and the Future of the Care Continuum,” profiles Dr. Fleischut’s efforts to utilize big data and technology to drive innovation.  

Access to information is one area of focus for Dr. Fleischut.  He points to the development of an autotexting service and of the recently-released NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital mobile application as examples of IT solutions that address a fundamental need for patients and their families. The journal article explores the process that guides Fleischut and his team as they develop technologies such as these. 

When asked about the future of IT and the care continuum at NewYork Presbyterian, Dr. Fleischut  is optimistic.  The goal, he says, “is to implement innovative, technology-driven solutions for both clinicians and patients/families to enable NewYork-Presbyterian to deliver the best possible care.”
