Geevan George, MD

MS Student, Applied Clinical Informatics

Fall 2020-Spring 2022

I grew up in Huntsville, Alabama and about 15 years ago I moved Greenville, South Carolina where I call the Upstate home. I went to undergrad at Bob Jones University and medical school at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville.  I will be finishing my family medicine residency in June at Prisma Health and subsequently working as an outpatient position with Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System. The work I am able to do in caring for my patients has fueled my interest within clinical informatics, to improve the technology physicians and patients interact with when it comes to providing health care.

Growing up and working in the upstate of South Carolina lends itself to a variety of outdoor activities. If I am not caring for patients, you will usually find me hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains, kayaking, trail running or gardening. I enjoy deep sea fishing with my siblings and spending time with my church family.  I also travel overseas for medical mission trips where I have the opportunity to treat patients and teach medical students.

During my training as a medical student and resident, I realized how much time I spent in front of a computer documenting and searching information in the electronic medical record to care for my patients. I also realized that many physicians have become weary and burnout due to the time spent with the EMR; and this is where my interests lie. I want to learn tools to improve the physician experience with the EMR and leverage the technology to better care for my patient population. I also have interests with improving clinical workflow to enrich the physician and patient interaction and ultimately increase revenue. I look forward to learning about different tools that my colleagues have used within their clinical enterprises and share ideas on how to improve the clinical experience.
