University of Melboburne
I am a MD trained in Internal Medicine and hold a PhD in Biomedical and Health Informatics from the University of Washington in Seattle. I am a teaching and research academic at the School of Computing and Information Systems and the Centre for Digital Transformation of Health, both at the University of Melbourne.
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 am currently working on the use of Process Mining to understand patterns of health service utilisation, the impact of digital algorithms in generating cases of overdiagnosis, using machine learning to improve antimicrobial stewardship, among other projects.
I have extensive applied experience in health informatics since I was the Chief Medical Information Officer for Chile’s Catholic 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.
