Vice Chairman, National Operational Optimization

Bryan Wall, MD is HOPCo’s Vice Chairman and Chief of Medical Informatics, overseeing medical records, reviewing and analyzing data, and interfacing with the programming team to support the design and use of health technology. He led customization of HOPCo’s EMR environment, making it more physician-friendly and focused on patient-oriented quality initiatives. This allowed The CORE Institute (managed by HOPCo) to warehouse the clinic and financial data contained in the EMR, making it reportable and actionable in real time. He also supervised the building of healthcare outcomes and management tools that capture physician outcome reporting, physician evaluations, and patient reported outcomes, applications designed for physician and patient use on desktop and mobile devices. The generated data can be used for actively managing the quality of healthcare outcomes and determining which patients may be at risk for complications, by using predictive analytic models.

Dr. Wall also serves as Chief Executive Officer of The CORE Institute Specialty Hospital, overseeing the integration and evolution of a facility purchased out of bankruptcy by HOPCo in 2015, which is now dedicated exclusively to orthopedic procedures, and features two additional operating rooms, overhauled PACU and pre-op units, and new technologies such as Xenex and MAKO robots.
