Roger Boodoo, Navy Cmdr., MD
Radiologist, Clinical Informatics, Office of the Chief Health Informatics Office, Defense Health Agency
Falls Church, Va.
CDR Boodoo completed his 2-year Clinical Informatics fellowship in June 2018 at the University of Illinois, Chicago. During the fellowship, he developed a keen interest in blockchain technology and it applicability to healthcare. He had the opportunity to research blockchain protocols and to work on use-cases involving novel incentive models to motivate patients. Dr. Boodoo thinks there is opportunity to solve many healthcare pain points with blockchain and smart contracts in the areas of medical imaging, patient incentives, and decentralized micro-records. He believes that blockchain and AI will initially supplement existing legacy systems, but as the technology evolves, may eventually replace them. CDR Boodoo aspires to lead blockchain initiatives in the MHS.
Additionally, CDR Boodoo spearheaded an Enterprise Imaging (EI) strategy which included evaluating imaging workflows from many departments, engaging stakeholders, and assessing vendor solutions for the storage, retrieval, and display of DICOM and non-DICOM images throughout the enterprise. Dr. Boodoo hopes to elevate EI to the next level in the MHS by applying artificial intelligence to our millions of diagnostic images.
Before the fellowship, Dr. Boodoo practiced as a Radiologist at the Fort Belvoir Community Hospital and held many leadership positions as a Medical Officer in the United States Navy and Marine Corps. Initially, CDR Boodoo enlisted in the Navy as an E-1 corpsman and deployed on the USNS Comfort to Haiti, then later served as a USMC Battalion Surgeon including a combat tour in Haditha, Iraq with the 3/1 Infantry Battalion.
