What Does LATTTE Mean?

A Little About Me

I am a clinician-educator at Michigan Medicine, the University of Michigan in the division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology.

At Michigan Medicine, we use Epic for our EHR, and it is called MiChart. We went live in 2012. In addition to caring for patients, I am interested in a few specific areas:

  • sharing ideas on metacognition and how it can help improve personal well being and reduce clinical diagnostic error in patient care
  • working on projects to improve the User Experience within the EHR
  • developing tools to help physicians master the EHR and in order to reduce the role of  EHR-driven physician burn out

The journey to mastering both clinical medicine and the EHR is intertwined. We have a lot of work ahead of us to make this parallel journey rewarding and enjoyable.

Feel free to send me a note with comments on topics covered or errors discovered on  The LATTTE Lab.

Thanks for visiting.

I have no financial disclosures related to work on this site. But I do love spending time with my wife and children. I also love pour-over coffee and intuitive technology that solves problems both little and big.
