Jason Baron, MD, is a medical director in the Core Laboratory and an investigator in Pathology Informatics within the Department of Pathology at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Baron's research interests are focused on clinical decision support for laboratory testing and the application of statistical methods, and "big-data" analytics to enhance laboratory diagnosis.

He is particularly interested in the use of artificial intelligence to derive more precise and patient-specific, diagnostic, prognostic and prescriptive information from sets of routine "commodity" laboratory data. His clinical responsibilities include overseeing reference laboratory testing as well as advancing quality improvement and utilization management initiatives throughout the Core Lab.
