His research focuses on implementation science and population-based quality improvement projects, particularly through informatics-based interventions such as Telehealth, Remote Patient Monitoring and electronic health record based algorithms to identify populations most likely to benefit from these interventions. His previous work includes development and implementation of clinical decision tools to improve resource utilization as well as a novel patient care model for lower acuity patients in the ED. He also leads institutional initiatives to implement the CMMI Emergency Triage, Treat and Transport (ET3) program as well as a collaboration with the New York City Fire Department and other NYC health systems to divert low-acuity 911 calls to hospital-based telemedicine programs. Dr. Daniels is also the site-PI for the MIGHTy Heart clinical trial, which is currently recruiting 2100 patients across NYC.

Peter Greenwald, M.D.

Director, Telemedicine
Associate Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine

Peter Greenwald

Dr. Greenwald led the early implementation of telemedicine at Weill Cornell, which began using telemedicine for emergency department visits in 2016 and rapidly flexed their telemedicine expertise to meet the demands of COVID.

Dr Greenwald is particularly passionate about the future potential for telemedicine both in the United States and Internationally. In the education realm, he feels telemedicine has unrealized potential to expand capacity in both graduate and undergraduate training, including professional training in areas where such training has not previously been possible. In the clinical realm, he is interested in how provider to provider consultation through telemedicine can be used to build both capacity and quality. His is currently focused on exploration of these educational and clinical futures for telemedicine in an international context.
