    I practiced pediatrics for x 18 yrs before committing to ziPede full time in May 2013. I have firsthand experience of the challenges clinicians face when delivering care. Patient recall, health literacy & disparities in care must be addressed. I know that we can improve the quality of health care delivered in US. We have the technology. I founded a thriving pediatrics dept within a large multispecialty clinic 7 yrs ago.
