          About This Event

          Summary

          Abstract:

          Global health informatics represents a growing discipline that cultivates technology partnerships across institutions of various disciplines. Whether academic, governmental, or public in nature, the collaboration between these sectors provides myriad opportunities for research and development within the computer science and informatics disciplines. Paul will provide examples of these partnerships in discussing the Indiana University – Moi University academic partnership, and how collaboration from these campuses facilitates the development of the largest health information system to support both HIV and primary health care in sub-Saharan Africa. He will also describe the rapidly growing, international, open source project called OpenMRS which Paul helped create alongside other Indiana University faculty.  Finally, Paul will discuss the Health Informatics Public Private Partnership. This program highlights the Regenstrief Institute’s active leadership in global health informatics through its involvement with the US Government to provide adaptive technical assistance in health information exchange (HIE) within the world’s most resource poor environments.

          Bio:  Dr. Biondich is an assistant professor of pediatrics, IU School of Medicine; and a research scientist at the Regenstrief Institute. Biondich is a medical informatics researcher whose research interests include decision support systems and controlled medical vocabularies.  As a practicing pediatrician, he has significant experience in the design, implementation and installation of multiple decision support systems, particularly within outpatient settings. 

           

          Dr. Biondich is the co-creator of the Child Health Improvement through Computer Automation (CHICA) system, which is designed to improve the process of outpatient pediatric preventive care.  Much of this work with the American Academy of Pediatrics involves the disambiguation and active revision of pre-existing clinical guidelines, along with the ultimate development of supporting standardized vocabularies.  He also has extensive experience with clinical repository development, having co-developed the AMRS, an open source repository designed to support HIV care in sub-Saharan Africa.
