Dr. Michael Shrift is Chief Medical Information Officer and Vice President, Clinical Knowledge Management at Allina Health and Hospitals, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Allina, an eleven hospital, one hundred clinic integrated delivery network, has attained national prominence through leadership in patient care quality and safety. This is facilitated by the Excellian implementation, a technology suite including the Epic EMR that earned Allina the Davies Award in 2007. Dr. Shrift joined Allina in September 2008 to leverage Excellian for patient care workflow, quality and safety improvements. His teams have rolled out real-time best practice decision support tools and algorithms (Guardrails and Cattleprods) that advance core measure and national patient safety goal compliance. These were presented at the Epic International Users' Group as first to market innovations. They have contributed to Allina attaining best-in-nation diabetes care. Prior to joining Allina, Dr. Shrift served 10 years with Centura Heath, a 12 hospital IDN headquartered near Denver, Colorado, where he was most recently CMIO and Vice President of Information Technology. As Centura's first CMIO he implemented Cerner PowerChart, Siemens Novius RIS, and later the MEDITECH EMR. He was also responsible for selecting and implementing Fuji Synapse PACS in what was Fuji's largest implementation, for which he gave the Fuji global meeting keynote address in 2007. While at Centura he co-invented MobileMD Health Information Exchange and served as Commissioner to the Governor for the Office of Science and Technology. Originally intending to pursue a passion for mathematics and computer science, Dr. Shrift changed direction when a relative was found to suffer from a brain disease. He attended Stanford University as an undergraduate where he performed CNS research and was a Rhodes Scholar candidate. He attended Medical School at the State University of New York where his father, Dr. Alex Shrift, led the lab that identified selenium toxicity and deficiency cycles in the biosphere. He completed residency in Psychiatry at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. He served as chief resident and then joined the faculty where he investigated withdrawal states in trauma patients and was director of consultation psychiatry. His strengths in informatics and business consultation led the department to send him for a MBA at the University of Denver Daniels College of Business. During this time he worked in collaboration with a BC/BS behavioral health HMO carve-out as associate medical director. Dr. Shrift is a Six Sigma Greenbelt, a Project Management Professional and is ITIL Foundations certified. He is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
