    • Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Cardiovascular Medicine at Stanford Health Care

    Dipanjan Banerjee, MD, MS is a cardiologist trained in advanced heart failure and cardiac transplantation, with a primary interest in patients with end stage heart failure. In his clinical practice he cares for patients with heart failure, mechanical heart-assist devices, and heart transplantation both in the coronary care unit (CCU) and in the outpatient clinic.  His research interests are clinical, and primarily involve improving outcomes in patients with left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) and the use of digital health technology. Regarding the latter, he has conducted studies to determine whether digital health technology can reduce readmission rates in patients with heart failure hospitalizations, and capture the rate of recovery in paitents after LVAD placement. Currently, he is part of a multi center trial sponsored by the American Heart Association (AHA) trying to determine whether digital health technology can improve the lives of patients with diabetes and heart failure (TARGET-HF).

    Sanjeev Bhavnani MD is a cardiologist and physician-scientist in healthcare innovation and practice transformation at Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation. Dr. Bhavnani was a Qualcomm Wireless Health Scholar at TSRI where he was involved in the design of next generation digital medicine clinical trials. As a principle investigator on several studies, he has designed trials using nanosensors, wireless mHealth and smartphone-connected devices, handheld ultrasound, lab-on-a-chip technologies and cloud-based data platforms across various patient populations, and to assess the impact of new technologies on healthcare quality, costs, and outcomes. These trials have been executed across the US and in resource limited areas – Uganda, India, and Mexico – where he and his team have designed the first smartphone-connected mHealth clinics . To date, these mHealth clinics have enrolled 20,000+ patients. Dr. Bhavnani works with teams of clinicians, researchers, biomedical engineers, translational informatics, and biostatisticians. He serves on the innovation advisory boards of several national medical societies and has worked with digital health think tanks to develop the CONNECT legislation and 21st Century Cures Act. He is board certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular diseases, nuclear cardiology, echocardiography, and clinical informatics, and has been recognized as a 'Top Doc' and 40-under-40 life science innovators in San Diego.

    • Director, Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program at Massachusetts General Hospital

    Ami  B. Bhatt is the director of the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Center at MGH and an active clinical cardiologist, investigator and educator.  She innovates in the cardiology space at the MGH Heart Center in the domains of telemedicine for patient visits, adolescent education, multimodality teleconferences, and adoption of mobile health technologies.  Her work has most recently centered on applying design thinking to the multidisciplinary care process creating transparent systems for coordinating and achieving patient and physician centric care, emphasizing that the two are not mutually exclusive. Her interest in digital health strategy stems from her beliefs that state of the art, personalized care can be delivered to individuals in the community and that “concierge” style medicine is possible for everyone.  In her recent promotion to Director of Outpatient Services within Cardiology at the MGH, she is working with patient and family advocates, MGH administration, and design teams on their outpatient care model.  The MGH Healthcare Transformation Lab is home to her creative side, and allows her the space to innovate with partners from different domains.  When she’s not busy innovating, she spends time with her husband and two daughters, having dance parties and traveling.
