Dr. Adusumalli is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine, Assistant Chief Medical Information Officer at the University of Pennsylvania Health System and is a general cardiologist, echocardiographer, and assistant cardiovascular disease fellowship program director with the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. He also serves as a clinical innovation manager for the Nudge Unit and the Acceleration Lab at the Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation. Dr. Adusumalli spends the majority of his time caring for patients with cardiovascular disease in the clinic, inpatient wards, and cardiac intensive care unit. Outside of his clinical commitments, his interests and work focus on the utilization of health information technology to advance clinical care, education, and research. He is particularly interested in methods of using technology to evaluate and accelerate the adoption of evidence-based healthcare in a manner that is safe for patients and easy for clinicians.

Michael Dorsch is an Assistant Professor, pharmacist and clinical researcher who studies the effects of health information technology on outcomes in cardiovascular disease. His current work focuses on increasing adherence to a low sodium diet in hypertension and increasing self-monitoring in heart failure to promote patient self-management strategies.

A graduate of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Monique Tanna, MD, completed her fellowship in cardiovascular diseases at the NYU School of Medicine and a second fellowship, in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology, at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Tanna is an Assistant Professor of Medicine specializing in advanced heart failure, mechanical circulatory support and transplant cardiology with an interest in remote monitoring in heart failure. Her research interests include improving heart failure outcomes and reducing heart failure readmissions through various approaches, including remote monitoring with both invasive monitors as well as wearable sensors.
