Biography

Seppo Rinne, MD, PhD, Medicine/Pulmonary, Allergy, Sleep & Critical Care Medicine, is a pulmonary/critical care physician, clinical informaticist and health services researcher with expertise in organizational factors influencing health information technology uptake and use. His research spans three overlapping areas: organization of care for patients with chronic pulmonary diseases; individual and organizational factors impacting clinician burnout; and application of technology to improve healthcare delivery. A leader in clinician morale, he has published the largest study on physician burnout nationally and some of the only studies to examine longitudinal changes in burnout. He was nominated to the American Thoracic Society Membership Committee to champion member well-being, and he led a Critical Care Societies Collaborative task force to determine the role of professional societies in addressing burnout. He is based at the Bedford VA-Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Hospital.
