February 6, 2020
The February meeting drew a large crowd as members welcomed Rish Singh, MD, staff surgeon at the Cole Eye Institute and
medical director of Informatics, Cleveland Clinic; Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Lerner College of Medicine in Cleveland, OH.
Dr. Singh specializes in the treatment of medical and surgical retinal disease such as diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. He has authored greater than 60 peer reviewed publications, books, and book chapters and serves as the principal investigator of numerous national clinical trials advancing the treatment of retinal disease.
Dr. Singh's current work focuses on the electronic medical records implementation, lean process improvement, and decision support modules for clinical practice. He operates the Cleveland Clinic Electronic Health Record Consulting program. He has been honored with several research recognitions such as the Alpha Omega Alpha Research Award and the American Society of Retina Specialists Senior Honor Award.
Dr. Singh presented two stimulating lectures followed by a dynamic question and answer session after each presentation. Shelley Mo, MD Resident at the University of Pittsburgh Eye Center, presented an interesting case for commentary by Dr. Singh.
Thank you to Thiery Verstraeten, MD, for inviting Dr. Singh and to Dutch Ophthalmics USA for support of the program.
