Overview

Marvin is pragmatic and with a strong desire to evaluate practice or systems and their implementations and how they impact patient care. This has long led him to the use of data mining methods including natural language processing, machine learning and valued collaborations with local trainees and faculty as well as clinical informatics colleagues around the country. Lately, Marvin has developed an increasing focus on how we can improve and benchmark the quality of care across institutions and populations.
