Hello Health Informatics Forum,
My name is Khalil and I am currently a health informatics student at UVic. I have obtained a Bachelors of Science in Biology, so my I have a strong science background. I have always been interested in the health sector and computers, naturally this field of study is something I chose. I look forward to reading everyone's posts and contribute.

I am a full time student and dad at University of Phoenix studying to get a B.A in Healthcare Information System in 2013; I already have my A.A in Healthcare Administration. I do have some experience in fixing and upgrading computers and teaching an Introduction to Computer class in my church. I originally lived in Washington D.C but moved to North Carolina hoping to start my new career here. I look forward to picking the brains of those that already in the field of Healthcare information systems so I can know what to study and what to focus on so I can get my feet in the door of a new career.
I look forward to talking to you soon.
I am Athar and I am from Pakistan.
When I was at medical school I always thought of how easy it is to link all data and each and every department in a hospital electronically but no one even care. I was unaware of such field then but now as I know I am enrolling in to Msc Health informatics.
I am good at computers and programming from my childhood and now as I am already a medical doctor, It is best choice for me to pursue my career in health informatics.
It is nice to know about someone from Pakistan interested in Health Informatics...
Robert Reed...I've worked in a student health clinic at the University of Texas in Austin for nearly 15 years. Mostly I've been purely IT but lately I'm making the shift to more Health IT centric job roles including working directly with the clinicians and other staff in the clinic to understand their workflow and how IT can assist with that.
My name is Nina Kuligowski. I am a second years student of Master of Health Informatics at Saint Louis University, Mo. I have a bachelor in English and A.S.S in Health Information Technology. I am orginally from Thailand and curently living in the USA. I would like to start a new carreer here in the States. Nice to meet you all.
My name is Jean Bouche - I am a Registered Dietitian in Green Bay, Wisconsin USA. I work in a community hospital delivering nutrition therapy to patients - general medical, surgical and ICU.
I became interested in Health Informatics when our hospital switched to EPIC for its electronic health records. I enjoy the learning how the electronic records can be used to improve the (nutrition) care of the patient.
I believe that there is so much more sharing that can be done, especially from the ancillary professionals to improve the service delivered, as right now I am seeing so many other facilities (nutrition departments) feeling as if they are starting from ground zero each time a facility / hospital starts implementing an electronic record.
I would like to help facilitate other professionals, especially Registered Dietitians, understand what the electronic health records can do for them; incorporate the Nutrition Care Process; improve charting; and work across the continuum of care between the hospital, the outpatient clinics, doctors offices and public health in tracking and improving nutrition for all.
I have created a LinkedIn group called Nutrition Care in the Electronic Health Record to help facilitate this discussion.
Thank you. I look forward to the MOOC to learn and collaborate with others.
