Curriculum Vitae


Library Responsibilities

  • Participate in strategic planning for HSLIC and for the Biomedical Informatics Research, Training and Scholarship Unit
  • Deliver lectures in the new Clinical Informatics Fellowship on process improvement and health information exchange topics

Contact me for assistance with:

  • Clinical decision support
  • Medical informatics
  • The New Mexico Health Information Collaborative, which operates a statewide health information exchange that could provide opportunities for:

— Research access to clinical information across a variety of settings
— Development and testing of population health models and other predictive analytics
— Research into user adoption, workflow analysis and effectiveness and efficacy of a health information
     exchange (recent ONC call for more high-quality research in this area)
— A clinical portal platform that could be used to put other innovative informatics apps into the hands of
     practitioners (We are working with the Board of Pharmacy to provide easy access from portal to prescription
     monitoring program. The same could be done for access to content-specific medical knowledge.)
