Starting his career as a bedside trauma nurse, he began to witness many gaps in medical technology. Thus beginning his life’s work journey.
QUESTION: What prompted the passion behind devoting your life’s work to clinical informatics?
Charles Boicey: I began my career as a trauma nurse at LA County, USC Medical Center working bedside. LA County is a level one trauma center. We saw just about every variety of patient through our doors. This gave me firsthand experience as to how crucial each minute is for the patient’s full recovery. As my career path took shape I began to spend a lot of time with medical devices and medical information systems. I was always on the clinical side of the healthcare industry, and this led me to realize that the medical field was underutilizing clinical informatics to help saves patient lives.
