His community outreach efforts will assist other clinicians throughout Michigan and beyond adopt and effectively use EMR systems to improve care.

Dr. Zaroukian research activities will also focus on educating the next generation of health professionals in medical informatics. This research will yield new knowledge and strategies to ensure that graduating students and practicing clinicians possess the competencies they need to use information technology to improve health care quality, saftey, efficiency and patient satisfaction.
