Brent D. Steineckert, MPH, PMP | Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Centers
Brent Steineckert has been part of Sharp Rees-Stealy (SRS) Medical Centers since 1998 and currently serves as the director for the Ambulatory Electronic Health Record, Patient Access, & Health Information Management Departments. As one of the largest, most comprehensive medical groups in San Diego County, Sharp Rees-Stealy has more than 600 physicians and 2,800 staff members who represent virtually every field of medicine and are dedicated to delivering the extraordinary level of care called The Sharp Experience, which combines clinical excellence, advanced technology and patient- and family-centered care.
Brent received his undergraduate degree in Molecular Cell Biology at the University at California, Berkeley and his graduate degree in Public Health at San Diego State University. He is also a certified Project Management Professional (PMP), and has been trained as a California Awards for Performance Excellence (CAPE) examiner. In the years working at SRS, Brent has been involved most prominently in the integration of technology into medical operations. In 2003, he wrote several software programs to help physicians, including one that allowed physicians to submit their hospital billing on-line, increasing efficiency and revenue for the practice. He designed and coded a physician scheduling application, which enabled physicians to share their vacation and on-call schedules across the enterprise.
Sharp Rees-Stealy was one of the first large medical groups in San Diego to launch virtual care (telemedicine) in 2015. Since that time, telemedicine has become a standard of practice with physicians and staff using “webside manner” to connect to their patients. COVID-19 created a huge demand for virtual care, and during the peak 70% of all patient visits were conducted via telemedicine. Most recently, Brent is working on a vision to empower the most underutilized member of the care team: the patient by making it even easier for patients to schedule appointments, seek care, and access their medical records.
