Dr. William Bria, president of the Association of Medical Directors of Information Systems, has been named chief medical officer of Dataskill, a San Diego-based systems integrator. In his new role, he'll be charged with helping develop clinical decision-support systems that leverage the computing power of IBM's Watson data analytics system.
"It's a new generation of (clinical decision support)," Bria said. "It's to add analytics in real time to the care process with an engine that can do it.”
Bria previously served as chief medical informatics officer at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Tampa, Fla. Bria said he will maintain his residence in the Tampa area.
