Dr. Adam Landman is an emergency physician and chief medical information officer for health information innovation and integration at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Landman holds degrees in information systems and health care policy from Carnegie Mellon University and a medical degree from UMDNJ – Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. After medical school, he trained in emergency medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, and completed the RWJ Foundation Clinical Scholars fellowship in health services research, where he worked on qualitative and quantitative studies on the adoption of health information technology in the emergency department and pre-hospital settings.
Dr. Landman focuses on the innovative use of information technology to improve health care delivery.

He is currently responsible for clinical oversight of the implementation and integration of a new hospital laboratory system, as well as multiple projects related to a new enterprise implementation and health information innovation programs.
The Landman laboratory has received grant funding to build and pilot a mobile app for capturing and storing clinical images; use high-fidelity medical simulation centers to evaluate health information technology in a controlled, safe environment; and build an improved electronic medication administration and reconciliation system. Dr. Landman welcomes the opportunity to work with students and residents interested in clinical and research informatics.
