Few Words About Me

David A Stumpf, MD, PhD

Health Care Innovation Broker
As a physician executive, I've been in many sectors of the healthcare industry, which enables me to guide clients and mentees through the complexities of the industry and open up opportunities. My expertise includes early stage companies, merger and acquisition, and a variety of health information technology areas (workflows, common ontologies supporting evidence based rules, clinical decision support, coordination of care, assessment of competencies, practice improvement, preferences, and new reimbursement strategies). As an MD, PhD, I am a Professor Emeritus at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (NUFSM) and President and lead consultant at Woodstock Health Information and Technology. I mentor early stage companies @MATTER. I  served the Illinois State Medical Society as a Member of their House of Delegates and the Council on Economics. In summary, I have held executive and leadership roles in academic, clinical practice, hospital, professional society, and payer venues. ​
