y to improve identification and communication of the tests ordered in the hospital that have pending results at the time of discharge. He will also work on systems to better identify the responsible follow-up healthcare providers for patients being discharged from the hospital, and to deliver test results that become available after discharge.

"As a hospital-based general internist, I care for patients with a host of problems for which I often perform tests that can take days or even weeks to come back from the lab. My patients usually don't need to stay in the hospital just waiting for these results, but there is no reliable system that allows me to be certain that those doctors who will be caring for my patient after discharge will track those test results and, if necessary, adjust the patient's treatment accordingly," said William Tierney, M.D., president and CEO of the Regenstrief Institute and associate dean for health-care effectiveness research at the IU School of Medicine. He also serves as chief of medicine at Wishard Health Services.

Dr. Were is originally from Kenya. He is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Medical School. He completed a general internal medicine residency at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston and a fellowship in medical informatics at the Regenstrief Institute and the IU School of Medicine.
