Project Manager, Council of Academic Hospitals of Ontario Antimicrobial Stewardship Program Project
Mount Sinai Hospital / University Health Network
Yoshi has been managing, analyzing, and mining data in the clinical arena since 1998. At the Hospital for Sick Children and Toronto General Hospital, she worked in clinical research with a focus on cystic fibrosis and liver diseases.
She later extended her knowledge of clinical research as a Project Manager of clinical trials within the pharmaceutical industry at Schering Plough Research Institute (now Merck & Co.). Yoshi was a principal contributor to process harmonization, devising a common set of best practices within the Global/International clinical research division, and a subject matter expert driving requirements for a web-based data collection and management solution that became the industry standard.
Yoshi first joined Mount Sinai Hospital in the Informatics Department, performing in a lead role for the design, build, and implementation of Computer Physician Order Entry (CPOE). She was also active in a number of data solutions, including Business Intelligence Analytics, MOHLTC data reporting initiatives, and managed the development of a web-based application serving 11 hospitals within Ontario.
Yoshi later joined the MSH-UHN Antimicrobial Stewardship Program in 2012 as a Project Manager under the CAHO ASP Intensive Care Units ARTIC initiative, a two-year provincial project aimed to establish antimicrobial stewardship programs in ICUs in Ontario’s academic hospitals.
