Casey Distaso, MD

MS Student, Applied Clinical Informatics

Fall 2021-Spring 2023

I am an emergency medicine physician, and I am joining the Vanderbilt community as a Clinical Informatics Fellow this August. I attended medical school at Georgetown University in Washington D.C., and was introduced to the field of Clinical Informatics through research projects at the Medstar Health National Institute for Human Factors.

I am currently completing my emergency medicine training at University of Chicago. While dodging Chicago winters and the pandemic, I work for a digital front door health-tech company called Clearstep Health. My deepest interests lie in the exploration of new, innovative technologies that can be adapted to healthcare, telemedicine, and electronic health record usability. I am very excited to meet everyone, and to build a foundation in clinical informatics.
