Seth Berkowitz, MD
Seth J. Berkowitz, M.D., is an interventional radiologist and the Medical Director of Radiology Informatics in the Department of Radiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC).
As the Medical Director of Radiology Informatics, Dr Berkowitz provides physician input to guide implementation and enhancement of the PACS, RIS, enterprise viewer, post processing, and reporting tools in the Department of Radiology. He is actively incorporating artificial intelligence into the radiologist’s workflow.
Dr. Berkowitz is interested in the ways that software facilitates communication between clinicians and between providers and patients. He develops mobile and web applications that empower patients to make informed healthcare decisions guided by data. Dr. Berkowitz also builds tools that connect physicians with data to improve efficiency, reduce variability, and guide better treatment decisions. His applications, used in production at BIDMC, enable bedside image viewing (eyeRad), facilitate radiology education (RadViewer), securely capture patient photographs (PhotoConsult), and enhance radiologist communication (Multimedia Report). He leads a multidisciplinary effort to build and deploy BIDMC HomeLink, a remote monitoring telemedicine application that leverages IOT sensors and FHIR APIs to the BIDMC EHR to engage patients in their own health care and extend the continuity of care beyond the bounds of the hospital and physicians’ offices.
Dr. Berkowitz received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and his medical degree from John Hopkins University School of Medicine. He completed residency in diagnostic radiology and a fellowship in vascular and interventional radiology, both at BIDMC.
