Dr. Jason Shapiro is Associate Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine, Director of the Department's Emergency Medicine Informatics Fellowship and Chief of the Division of Informatics.
Dr. Shapiro's research focuses on evaluating health information technology, with a specific focus on health information exchange, investigating its impact on quality measurement, care coordination, resource utilization, health care costs, and provider satisfaction. Other areas of active interest include ED information system implementation evaluation, workflow integration strategies for health IT, public health, and biosurveillance.
Dr. Shapiro has worked with the New York Clinical Information Exchange (NYCLIX) project since its inception in 2005, and serves as the Chair of the NYCLIX Clinical Advisory and Evaluation Committees. Dr. Shapiro was funded by a five-year K99/R00 grant from the National Library of Medicine, ending in July 2012, to complete a longitudinal evaluation of NYCLIX.
Dr. Shapiro was recently awarded a five-year R01 award from the Agency for Health Research and Quality (AHRQ) entitled "Advancing Quality Measurement and Care Improvement with Health Information Exchange." This project began in May 2012 and developed a regionally-based measure for early ED returns, an important quality measure widely used in emergency medicine; it also built a notification system to enroll frequent ED users in case management to improve their access to care and reduce ED recidivism.
Dr. Shapiro is a Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians, a standing member of AHRQ's Health Care Research Training Study Section and a Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
