Rodrigo Galindo manages technology and supports research and education for simulation programs at the Center for Advanced Pediatric & Perinatal Education (CAPE) (http://cape.stanford.edu) within the School of Medicine/Pediatrics/Neonatology division. He also assists with collaborative quality improvement initiatives between CAPE and the departments of Labor & Delivery and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital.
Prior to joining CAPE, Rodrigo was Senior Director, Special Projects and IT Director for over 15 years at several flagship pediatric subacute facilities: Children’s Recovery Center (CRC), Sub-Acute Saratoga Children’s Hospital (SASH), and Scribbles and Giggles Pediatric Day Health Center (collectively known as Pediatric Recovery Network). Through his tenure he also trained staff in and managed clinical IT and biomedical technology. A notable accomplishment included implementation of Masimo Patient Safety Net (PSN), a centralized and remote monitoring system for pulse oximetry, at CRC and SASH.
Rodrigo has a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (emphasis in Adapted Physical Activity) from San Jose State University and a Master of Science in Physiotherapy from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland. Through his professional work at CAPE and in the community through The Medically Fragile Children’s Foundation of Northern California, Rodrigo continues to be an advocate for advancing programs that not only improve the quality of life, but the quality of childhood for children who have severe medical needs and require medical technology to sustain life.
