Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Biomedical Informatics Research
Lance Downing, MD is a faculty member in Biomedical Informatics Research at Stanford and board-certified internal medicine and clinical informatics. He splits his time between clinical practice, hospital medical informatics and applications of artificial intelligence in healthcare. He works with the Clinical Excellence Research Center – a research group dedicated to reducing the cost of high-quality care – directing the Partnership in AI collaboration with the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab. Recognizing that the complexity of medicine has grown beyond the abilities of even the most expert clinician, they focus applications of computer vision to address some of the greatest challenges in healthcare: perfecting intended care for frail patients in settings ranging from the intensive care unit to the home. He has published work in the New England Journal of Medicine, Health Affairs, Annals of Internal Medicine, and the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association. His interests include a design-based approach to understand how technology has impacted the work of clinicians and implications for new care models, workflow, and technology integration.
