Medical Informatics – a growing opportunity to improve outcomes
Recently, Vohra Wound Care’s Chief Information Officer, Dr. Christopher Leonard, spent time with the team at Vital Physician Executive discussing his career, as he transitioned from a general surgeon, to a wound surgeon, to heading the building and development of Vohra’s proprietary electronic health record system.

In the podcast, Dr. Leonard shares his career history, an explanation of medical informatics and key trends, and advice on how to pursue a career in medical informatics.
At Vohra, our physician-led EHR development is a critical piece of our ability to support our Physicians and Skilled Nursing Facilities with consistent, first-rate patient care. With over six million wounds catalogued, it’s also a deep repository for us to build our own informatics to help guide physicians in clinical decision making (for example, you can find our wound healing predictor in our mobile app). We continue to develop cutting-edge technologies and are currently working on next-generation AI healing tools.
