Dr. Tsai is a board-certified family medicine physician, clinical informaticist, and trained in osteopathy. He is a clinical assistant professor in the Stanford University School of Medicine Department of Medicine – Primary Care and Population Health. Prior to joining Stanford Health Care, he obtained a Master of Management in clinical informatics from Duke University.

Dr. Tsai seeks to improve clinician workflows and patient care by applying his knowledge of clinical informatics. His innovations allow providers to quickly access, share, and document information to advance patient care. He has also held many notable leadership, educational, and quality control positions throughout his career.

Dr. Tsai investigates ways to maximize the time clinicians spend with patients. He expedites and standardizes communication between health care providers and patients through the integration of mobile devices and remote patient monitoring programs. He streamlines the documentation process by updating electronic medical record tools and creating more efficient patient questionnaires to optimize the quality of care.

He has presented his research orally or in poster format at the American Medical Informatics Association, Family Medicine Education Consortium, and American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine. As a medical student, Dr. Tsai developed an open online osteopathic manipulation course, enrolling over 1,200 students. As a clinical fellow at Duke, he co-authored a textbook chapter on the future of health informatics

    On January 30, 2023, the Biden Administration announced its intention to end the existing COVID-19 public health emergency declaration. The transition to a "postpandemic" landscape presents a unique opportunity to sustain and strengthen pandemic-era changes in care delivery. With this in mind, we present 3 critical lessons learned from a primary care perspective during the COVID-19 pandemic. First, clinical workflows must support both in-person and internet-based care delivery. Second, the integration of asynchronous care delivery is critical. Third, planning for the future means planning for everyone, including those with potentially limited access to health care due to barriers in technology and communication. While these lessons are neither unique to primary care settings nor all-encompassing, they establish a grounded foundation on which to construct higher-quality, more resilient, and more equitable health systems.
