Ashley Spann, MD, MSACI

Clinical Fellow
Biomedical Informatics

Ashley Spann, MD, is currently a board-certified internal medicine physician pursuing combined fellowship training in clinical informatics and gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition here at Vanderbilt University. During this fellowship, she aims to become dually equipped in the application of technology for patients affected by GI illness and liver disease and impact patient care and clinical research within the field in a novel way that has yet to be done. Particular informatics interests include the use of predictive modeling for improving outcomes and management of patients with end-stage liver disease, and the integration of these models for use in clinical care through clinical decision support tools. She ultimately envisions a career as an academic hepatologist with particular interests in transplant hepatology within an active practical research program focused on using machine learning methods and health system tools to not only advance care for the treatment of patients with end stage liver disease, but also to be able to identify patients at risk of disease progression in order to trigger preventative measures for these patients. Other informatics interests include large scale data assessment for modeling that could be potentially impactful for liver transplantation and organ allocation.
