About Me

Dr. Shapiro received his Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Iowa, completed the post-bac premedical program at Columbia University’s School of General Studies, received his MD from Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, completed residency in emergency medicine at Mount Sinai including a year as chief resident, and then completed a master’s degree and a postdoctoral fellowship in biomedical informatics at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

Dr. Shapiro's research focuses on evaluating health information technology, with a specific focus on health information exchange, investigating its impact on quality measurement, care coordination, resource utilization, health care costs, and provider satisfaction. Other areas of active interest include ED information system implementation evaluation, terminology services, workflow integration strategies for health IT, public health, and biosurveillance.

Dr. Shapiro has had numerous federal grants to support his informatics research since 2004, having completed biomedical informatics fellowship funded by a T15 from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) (2004-2006) and Pfizer (2006-2007), an NLM-funded K99/R00 as principal investigator (PI) entitled “Evaluation of the Impact of Health Information Exchange on Emergency Medicine” (2007-2012), an Agency for Health Research and Quality (AHRQ) R01 as PI (2012-2017) entitled "Advancing Quality Measurement and Care Improvement with Health Information Exchange" and an NLM-funded R01 as PI (2015-2018) entitled “Terminology Services to Reduce Avoidable CT Imaging”.

Projects include developing a regionally-based measure for early (72 hour) ED returns, an important quality screening measure widely used in emergency medicine; building a notification system to identify and enroll frequent ED users in case management to improve their access to care and reduce ED returns; mapping proprietary CT codes across 40 sites in the Healthix to the newly combined LOINC/RSNA standard terminology and measuring reliability and content-dependent coverage, and developing a simple anatomic ontology for proximity or similarity (SANOPS) as the basis for a future HIE-based duplicate CT alerting system.

Dr. Shapiro has been a member or fellow of numerous regional and national academic societies and organizations, including the American Medical Informatics Association, the American College of Emergency Physicians, and the New York Academy of Medicine.  He served as Chair of the ACEP Informatics Section and as a standing member of AHRQ's Health Care Research Training Study Section.
