  • Professor of Medicine, Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, School of Medicine
  • Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology, School of Medicine


Dr. Gold’s research focuses on the understanding the usability of Electronic Health Records in the ICU, specifically focused on the ability to use simulated patient charts to create high-fidelity EHR training exercises as well as provide a test bed to objectively assess usability of the EHR. This infrastructure has led to a number of publications and Dr. Gold has received grants from AHRQ to conduct this research. Recently, Dr. Gold has expanded this work to include understanding how all member of the interprofessional team (Nurses, pharmacists physicians etc….) interact with the EHR during ICU rounds. This was funded initially through a grant by the Donaghue foundation and AAMC and has since received additional RO1 funding from AHRQ.  In addition, this work is now part of the National Center for Interprofessional Care’s “NEXUS” network.

In part based on his work with EHR based simulation, Dr. Gold was appointed co-director of OHSU simulation in 2013, and in 2015 appointed Director of Simulation for OHSU.
