Today we feature Valmeek Kudesia, MD, MMSc, who graduated in 2013.
I completed my residency in Internal Medicine at Boston Medical Center. During that time, I worked with the hospital ITS department on several interoperability initiatives, particularly during the time of the H1N1 Influenza pandemic.
I am the VP of Clinical Informatics and System Design at Commonwealth Care Alliance. I am the business owner of clinical systems, such as the EHR, and the driver of advanced and predictive analytics.
I came to the Biomedical Informatics program with a relatively deep technical and process background. The formal training gave me a protected opportunity to deepen my appreciation of where to best apply those technical skills.
The program offered a compelling freedom to craft my educational and training experience with some of the best minds in the nation.
I had the freedom to take courses and gain experience from almost any school at Harvard as well as the Harvard-MIT Program of Health Sciences and Technology (HST), which led to successful participation in the health-technology ecosystem in Boston and Cambridge.
Finding my “sight” in what I think our healthcare system needs, and how that “sight” changes with every new experience.
The environment gave me the freedom to find my own path and combine industry and applications experiences in my own way.
It has taught me to never delay an opportunity to do and learn on my own terms.
