Anthony A. Luberti, MD, is the medical director of informatics education in the Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Informatics and information technology are disciplines which have been shown to help support clinical care, education and research efforts in Global Medicine.
Since February 2009, Dr. Luberti has been involved in various aspects of CHOP’s Global Health programs and the Botswana UPenn Partnership (BUP) including the development and application of database programs and the use of various technologies and distance learning methods to support a number of educational and research efforts in Botswana.
In 2012, Dr. Luberti and others from CHOP, BUP, and the ministries and schools in Botswana put on the first (annual) Health Informatics Pitso (Symposium) in Gaborone. Currently he is collaborating with the Faculty of the University of Botswana School of Health Sciences to help them develop a curriculum in health informatics.
Dr. Luberti received his MD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and a masters in Information Science from Penn State University. He has more than 10 years experience with the implementation of several Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems at CHOP in both ambulatory and inpatient settings. Dr. Luberti also serves as Medical Director of CHOP's nurse triage call center, and is a supervising/attending physician for pediatric residents in CHOP’s Resident Continuity Clinic.
In July 2014, Dr. Luberti was selected for a Fulbright Specialist grant in Public/Global Health at University of Botswana, Botswana. The grant will allow him to offer a course in health informatics at University of Botswana to enhance the capacity of graduates to utilize health information systems for improved healthcare delivery. The course plans to equip students with knowledge, attitudes and skills needed to facilitate the input, management and retrieval of patient and health information for use in teaching, research and health quality improvement.

Patient Experience Ratings
About the Patient Experience Rating System
The Patient Experience Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown above from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content. Comments will appear on provider bios only if providers have a minimum number of comments.
Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care.
The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
