I am Professor and Chair of the Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology (DMICE) at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). These are exciting times for our field, with the increased attention to electronic health records by the new Obama administration. Of course, there are exciting things in other areas of the field as well, such as bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, and public health informatics. I hope to use this blog to raise attention to various issues in the field and look forward to your feedback.
