Robert S. Juhasz, DO, is the 118th president of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) which represents more than 110,000 osteopathic physicians in the United States. One of his primary initiatives is for AOA, a leader in the field of healthcare, to increase its already-considerable support of medical research.

A pioneer in the adoption of electronic health records, Dr. Juhasz was actively involved with the implementation of the electronic medical record system at the Cleveland Clinic before many physicians used these systems. In 2005, he participated in a panel with President George W. Bush to discuss the benefits of electronic medical records. He is now interested in the Big Data that is produced from widespread use of such electronic medical records systems to improve preventive care and population health management.
