Class of '82 Webinar
Understanding How to Utilize Technology to improve communication between Doctors and Patients

 Tuesday, November 14, 8:30-9:30 pm EDT

In 2011 a new program called "Meaningful Use" was created. This program provided incentive funds for Doctors and Hospitals to implement Health Information Technology. This technology has had a significant impact on the practice of medicine in the United States. Some feel the impact has been positive, others disagree.

Over the past few years the program has changed, and the current focus of the program is to encourage better doctor to doctor communication and doctor to patient communication. Two of the officers of the Class of '82 are doctors who have implemented Health Information Technology and they will share their perspectives on the impact of the program.

Our presenters include:

Class Vice President Dr. Michael Brody is a practicing Podiatrist in New York. He has been involved in the development of many of the standards that Electronic Health Records (EHR) utilize and has served and held positions at HITSP, CCHIT, The Standards and Interoperability Framework, HIMSS, and HL7 where is currently a co-chair of the EHR Workgroup.

Class President Dr. Scot Goldberg is a practicing Internist in Michigan. He has 28 years experience in private primary care. He has held many positions in organized medicine including President of Macomb County (MI) Medical Society, Michigan State Medical Society Board Member and Chairman of the Michigan Board of Medicine. He will offer his viewpoint of Medical Informational Technology from both the practicing physician and from organized medicine’s perspective.

35th Reunion Recap by our glorious past president, Mike Colucci:

Dear Classmates,

Thank you to everyone that was able to attend our 35th reunion which took place June 9-11, 2017.   We had great attendance with 111 classmates who attended the reunion including several first time attendees.  In addition to the overall MIT reunion events, we had a number of engaging class events including our class dinner on Saturday and Class brunch on Sunday morning as well as a tour of the changes on campus led by our classmate and Associate Provost Karen Gleason.   We also had outstanding turnout and participation at the Tech Challenge games which resulted in our 4th consecutive championship.  

I want to thank everyone that helped plan the reunion, who reconnected with classmates to encourage them to attend, or worked on the reunion gift committee.  Additionally, I want to thank our classmates who have volunteered to be Class Officers for the next five years leading to our 40th MIT reunion:

President – Scot Goldberg
Vice President – Michael Brody
Webmaster – Lina Morales
Secretary – Eve Ahlers 
Treasurer - David Kushner

In closing I also want to acknowledge our class members who are no longer with us including Doug White who passed away earlier this year.  Each of us formed strong relationships with some of our classmates while we were at MIT and some of us have unfortunately already lost close friends.   MIT tries to keep an updated list of alumni who have passed away and Lina has recently updated the list on our class website.

I hope to see all of you at our 40th reunion in 2022.  

Sincerely,
Mike Colucci 
Past  President Class of 1982
