He joined the UMMS IT department in 2012 and has helped in the design and product development of the Epic EHR platform in the role of system physician architect. With his IT peers, he started the UMMS physician builder program in 2014 and has a team of 10 funded physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants from various specialties who work to improve provider-facing EHR tools. Their focus is on improving patient safety, quality, finance, and operational efficiency.
Since 2016, Lemkin has served as a co-director of the University of Maryland, Baltimore Center for Healthcare Innovation. This Center's mission is to facilitate the development of research and clinical projects which leverage technology to improve patient care and experiences. In 2019, Lemkin won Epic's National Physician Academy Award for the physician who has had the greatest positive impact on the Epic EHR community in the past year. He continues to work on projects which leverage technology to improve health care at UMMS.
Dr. Eun-Shim Nahm is a professor and the program director for the Nursing Informatics program at the University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON). She also serves as a co-director of the Biology and Behavior Across the Lifespan Center of Excellence at the UMSON.
Her research focuses on the use of technology-based interventions to engage patients and their caregivers in their care and to promote self-management. She has conducted various studies in this field, including qualitative, measurement, theory testing, and usability studies as well as longitudinal intervention trials. Nahm is the recipient of multiple grant awards from the National Institutes of Health and Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. In her recent R21 study, her team is investigating the effects of a theory-based patient portal eLearning program on selected health-related outcomes in older adults with chronic illnesses. Additionally, with the grant from the Maryland Higher Education Commission Nursing Support Program II grant, she developed and implemented an RN-BSN focus area, Care Coordination with Health IT, which is the first focus area among RN-BSN programs.
She has published more than 65 peer-reviewed journal articles and five book chapters in her area of expertise. She has also given numerous presentations at regional, national, and international scientific conferences. At the UMSON, Nahm teaches graduate-level nursing informatics courses and doctoral-level research courses and has mentored numerous graduate and doctoral students as well as junior faculty members. She also coordinates all nursing informatics practicum placements and serves as an executive planning group member for the Summer Institute in Nursing Informatics.
