Enhancing the lives of clinicians, researchers and patients through innovative healthcare technology.


As the Clinical and Research Informatics Division of the Department of Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, the Laboratory of Computer Science is transforming healthcare delivery through biomedical informatics research and rapid development of innovative health information systems.

As technology advances and care models evolve, people remain at the heart of our technology. Our work enables patients, providers, researchers, and educators to connect in ways that are improving healthcare delivery.



Connecting Healthcare Professionals

Helping the primary care provider find the right specialist. Opening communication among the team of nurses, medical assistants and doctors working together to manage a patient’s care.

We are creating framework for collaboration across specialties, departments, and institutions.



Connecting Patients and Providers

Giving providers an easy way to reach their patients, and patients an easy way to reach their providers. Eliminating common barriers in communications like language, terminology, and location.

We are allowing patients to take an active role in their own healthcare journey.



Connecting People to Resources

Making clinical guidelines available to providers right at the point of care. Empowering patients to take control of their health by giving them access to records and relevant materials. Translating research into clinical practice.

We are putting information in the hands of people who need it, when and where they need it
