In the ten years he has served at MSH, Dr. Anand Doobay has been proud to share in Markham Stouffville Hospital’s (MSH) commitment to innovation in clinical practice. Now, as the hospital’s first Chief Medical Information Officer (CMIO), he’s looking forward to doing even more to advance this important work.

Dr. Doobay joined MSH as an intensivist and internist in 2010, became the hospital’s lead intensivist in 2012 and was appointed Chief of Medicine in 2018.

He will continue to serve as Chief of Medicine along with the CMIO position.

Dr. Doobay is credited with improving and launching a number of programs in MSH’s Intensive Care Unit, including the launch of dialysis services that began in early 2020.

“I see so many examples of how MSH has adopted and integrated leading-edge technology to help provide the very best and safest care to our community. As CMIO, I’m excited to be able to engage our physician team and our many partners so we can continue to move forward in the most resourceful and efficient way,” Dr. Doobay explains.

Some of the first projects Dr. Doobay has on his radar as CMIO include advancing voice dictation capabilities so physicians can spend less time dictating their patients’ medical reports, as well as improving the hospital’s data collection processes.

A graduate of the University of Alberta Medical School, Dr. Doobay completed both internal medicine and critical care training programs at the University of Toronto.

Outside of his physician leadership roles at MSH, Dr. Doobay can often be found sharing a game of tennis with family and friends, or belting out his favourite tunes karaoke-style. However, he notes that his greatest passion is spending time with his wife and two children.
