Ben Rosner, MD, PhDAssistant Professor, UCSF

    Measuring the impact of digital health tools at organizations delivering healthcare to patients is a challenge. Special expertise in navigating the large digital health landscape, how to determine true impact, and creating credible, defensible, and publishable analyses to measure those impacts.

    Prior to his role at USCF, Dr. Rosner was the CMIO of HealthLoop. He is the developer of a “patient engagement” vital sign, measured daily, and have used the expertise gained from patient-generated health data (PGHD) to inform policy makers at CMS. He has been tapped by CMS several times to convene national thought leader stakeholder groups, and actively work on the Patient Engagement and Empowerment Reporting (PEER) Framework, which he handed to the American Heart Association to steward, as well as a PGHD consortium consisting of thought leaders from major organizations around the country (AHA, AMA, HIMSS, NQF, Google, Microsoft, Cerner, academia).

    He is deeply familiar with the transition to value-based care, and is the lead author on a MIPS Improvement Activity IA-BE-14 which gives healthcare organizations high credit under MIPS to empower their patients with remote digital guidance and monitoring.
