Faculty ProfilesAaron Neinstein, MD
Board-certified in Endocrinology, Clinical Informatics, and Internal Medicine, I see patients in the UCSF Endocrinology Faculty Practice and lead the design, development, and implementation of innovative digital health solutions. I have years of experience in optimizing the electronic health record to support high quality and high value care as well as creating a more user-friendly experience for physicians and patients. I believe that health information needs to be easier for patients and doctors to access, share, understand, and use collaboratively in day to day care. My first effort toward this vision was on the founding team of Tidepool, a non-profit, open-source cloud platform and modern apps for managing type 1 diabetes. I currently lead efforts to enable an interoperable digital health ecosystem as Clinical Director of the Cisco-UCSF Connected Health Interoperability Platform initiative.
