Evan Orenstein, MD
Clinical Informatics Fellow
Evan completed his undergraduate degree at Yale University, where he worked in a mathematical epidemiology lab focusing on infectious disease modeling. He then received his medical degree from Emory University, during which time he spent one year in Bamako, Mali working on a clinical trial of maternal influenza immunization and studying its cost-effectiveness. During his pediatric residency at CHOP, he co-founded the New Epic Resident Development (NERD) Squad, a partnership of pediatric residents and informatics faculty dedicated to involving front-line clinicians more deeply in designing and evaluating new workflow tools in the electronic health record. The NERD Squad has leveraged the collective wisdom of pediatric residents to create documentation tools that also provide clinical decision support, develop an informatics curriculum for residents, and most recently to build apps that streamline documentation for front-line clinicians.
