Mitchell A. Adler, MD, JD, MPH, FACP
Dr. Adler attended medical school at NYU and received his post-graduate training at the NYU Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital, where he completed a three year residency in Internal Medicine followed by one year as Chief Resident. He subsequently joined the faculty of NYU School of Medicine and engaged in private practice between 1984 and 2012. He was a founding partner of the Murray Hill Medical Group (MHMG) in 1992. He helped implement an electronic medical record (EMR) system at MHMG in 1998, which led to his practice’s becoming paperless several years later. After using and optimizing his EMR system for 14 years, he left his practice to join the Northwell Health in 2012, where he is now Chief Medical Informatics Officer for Northwell Health Physician Partners, which is the health system’s ambulatory network. In that position, he oversees the ambulatory electronic health record (AEHR), also known as Allscripts TouchWorks.
Along the way, Dr. Adler also attended law school at Fordham, was admitted to the New York Bar, and earned a Master’s Degree in Public Health from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. He served a four year tenure as a member of the American College of Physician’s Medical Informatics Committee. At Northwell Health, he is also a member of the Division of Medical Ethics and an active member of the Ethics Committee.
