Biography

I am a MD trained in Internal Medicine and hold a PhD in Biomedical and Health Informatics from the University of Washington in Seattle, . My main interest is to develop methods to improve the use of clinical data for research. This includes the use of electronic health records and the data collected in them. I have extensive applied experience in health informatics since I was the Chief Medical Information Officer for Chile's Catholic University university healthcare network (2 hospitals, 11 clinics) during 4 years and I founded the Chilean National Centre for Health Information Systems, a 5-university initiative to implement healthcare information interoperability standards and to develop the health informatics workforce in the Chile.
