Research Summary

    Dr. Berger's primary research interest is in medical informatics.

    Over the last 14 years, a "clinical workstation" has been developed by Dr. Berger and others for global use within UNC Health System. Computerized physician order entry and use of "artificial intelligence" to enhance patient care continues to be the main thrust of Dr. Berger's research interest.  A history of this system, WebCIS, can be found here.

    Fellows in rheumatology are encouraged to participate in the development and testing of these software tools.
