Ami B. Bhatt is the director of the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Center at MGH and an active clinical cardiologist, investigator and educator. She innovates in the cardiology space at the MGH Heart Center in the domains of telemedicine for patient visits, adolescent education, multimodality teleconferences, and adoption of mobile health technologies. Her work has most recently centered on applying design thinking to the multidisciplinary care process creating transparent systems for coordinating and achieving patient and physician centric care, emphasizing that the two are not mutually exclusive. Her interest in digital health strategy stems from her beliefs that state of the art, personalized care can be delivered to individuals in the community and that “concierge” style medicine is possible for everyone. In her recent promotion to Director of Outpatient Services within Cardiology at the MGH, she is working with patient and family advocates, MGH administration, and design teams on their outpatient care model. The MGH Healthcare Transformation Lab is home to her creative side, and allows her the space to innovate with partners from different domains. When she’s not busy innovating, she spends time with her husband and two daughters, having dance parties and traveling.
