Lisa Rotenstein, MD, MBA, a resident in the Department of Medicine’s Internal Medicine Residency Program, was selected as a Spotlight Health Scholar at the Aspen Ideas Festival, held by The Aspen Institute, in honor of her work at the Brigham and with the startup company she co-founded, CareZooming. This award recognizes the honoree’s work, accomplishments and ability to transform ideas into action.

Rotenstein is a primary care physician at South Huntington Advanced Primary Care Associates. In addition to her clinical work, she researches physician wellness, chronic disease management (particularly diabetes), care delivery innovation and women in medicine.

Clinician innovators contribute to CareZooming’s collection of recipes, each of which describing a process-improvement project that has been successfully implemented at their health care organization. The recipes serve as a jumping-off point for other health care organizations interested in pursuing a similar project, without having to start from scratch.
