My Biography & Research

Biography

Dr. Neil Johnson is an Australian trained pediatric interventional radiologist practicing at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center since 1991.

As associate director of radiology from 1992-2006, he led one of the first filmless PACS implementations. He then became medical director of hospital information systems leading the implementation of an early institutional electronic medical information system, nationally recognized by the HIMSS Davies award in 2003. Dr. Johnson then became the first medical director of vascular access, working closely with physician and nurse leaders to integrate all PICC placement and maintenance under a single institutional team. The Department of Radiology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center established an endowed Chair of Radiology Informatics in his name in 2012.

He then co-led a hospital level initiative to reduce injuries from peripheral I/V therapy, which has been widely adopted nationally and internationally and is a co-leader in the peripheral IV infiltration and extravasation (PIVIE) prevention collaborative with Solutions for Patient Safety.

Dr. Johnson has been active in national pediatric radiology societies, including the Society for Pediatric Radiology, becoming president/chair of the Board 2010-2011, as well as the "Image Gently" Initiative and the World Federation of Pediatric Imaging. He has received a number of awards, including most recently the Gold Medal of the Society for Pediatric Radiology and the Janet Pettit scholarship of the Association for Vascular Access.
