Personal Statement

I am the Director of the Homer Warner Center for Informatics Research at Intermountain Healthcare and a Professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Utah. I have been active in research and postgraduate education. My expertise lies in (1) the study of tools for natural language processing in medicine; (2) the evaluation of probabilistic decision support systems for use in the health care process; (3) the development of computer-based tools to deliver detailed medical protocols; and (4) various applications of data mining to assist in the development of innovative medical software. Previous experience includes the development of components of two different medical information systems. Recently my efforts have focused on the construction of environments designed to support applied Informatics research and to support the testing of innovative tools for implementing decision support in active clinical settings. My active research interests include natural language processing to extract clinical information from medical documents, sharable approaches to representing decision support logic, models of disease capable of informing clinical care, uses of ontologies in research and care, and secondary uses of data collected in the course of care.
