Chase Parsons






Chase Parsons, DO

Chase trained in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at Geisinger Health System in Danville, Pennsylvania. He first became interested in Clinical Informatics as a medical student while supporting an Electronic Health Record (EHR) implementation at a community hospital. During his residency training, Chase led an initiative to enhance residency education and improve the efficiency of rounds through mobile EHR applications and HIPPA-compliant messaging while working with Medical Education to deploy iPads to residents. Chase is also interested in EHR user-interface and has been involved in developing an Inpatient Internal Medicine rounding dashboard as well as a visual interface to improve Surviving Sepsis Guidelines adherence in the Emergency Department. Chase plans to continue working on mobile health initiatives and optimizing EHR use while at Boston Children's Hospital.

Melissa trained in Pediatrics at Childrens Hospital at Montefiore in New York.  She has a background in engineering and project management with an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from MIT and experience managing product development at Xerox. She first became interested in health informatics during medical school at Cornell when she helped introduce iPads into the curriculum. During residency she was instrumental in the hospital's transition to and optimization of a new EHR. Her research focuses on clinical decision support and using new technologies to communicate with patients. In fellowship, she hopes to continue to engage patients using innovate technology like patient portals and integrating personal health data from mobile devices into EHRs.
