Association for Pathology Informatics


Providing quality patient care through the application of information technology to pathology and laboratory medicine.


After completing my residency and fellowship training at the University of Vermont College of Medicine-Fletcher Allen Health Care, I worked to create and direct that department’s division of pathology informatics. Currently, I am Division Head of Pathology Informatics at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan. Active in organized medicine throughout my training and professional career, I have served as membership officer for the ASCP-RPS, delegate to the CAP-RF and AMA-YPS and resident representative to the CAP-Informatics Committee.

At present, I am a member of the CAP-Education committee, the ASCP-Informatics Council and the API leadership council as an ad hoc member. I am a charter and sponsoring member of the API and participated in the Association’s planning council as well as serving as the charter membership officer. This work has given me broad exposure to the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine in a variety practice and geographic settings.

I have had experience and have developed some expertise in several areas of pathology informatics over the last ten years. These include:

  • Anatomic and clinical pathology laboratory information systems
  • Digital imaging systems for pathology practice
  • Computer networking, particularly hospital, wireless and mobile computing networks
  • Computer-based education (learning), particularly web-based multimedia
