Dr. Blackford Middleton, a renowned clinical informatics expert, has joined ClosedLoop as Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Middleton and ClosedLoop are both on a mission to use AI to improve every healthcare decision, and his decades of experience creating, implementing, and evaluating advanced clinical systems will help the company get closer to that goal.
Dr. Middleton will work with ClosedLoop to identify applicable informatics standards, support the production and usage of clinical content, and assist with corporate strategy, product design, and customer success.
