A Social Network and MOOC for Health Informatics Professionals and Students
This thread is to introduce yourself on the site and to let people know about your background.
I'm a Health Informatics Clinical Research Fellow (medical doctor) at the University of Oxford in the UK.
I spent the previous 7 years in New Zealand as a Lecturer in Health Informatics at the University of Otago and as a Senior Research Fellow in Health Informatics at the National Institute for Health Innovation at the University of Auckland.
I'm currently working as a diagnostic radiology resident and my post graduate studies in health informatics (Egyptian fellowship board). I have a good IT background as web development is one of my hobbies.
My ultimate goal in life is serving mankind through the application of health informatics, so my current work in clinical setting is just temporary as it will only serve limited number of people. Therefore, I'm trying to move to the next level and create new horizons by developing or delivering tools in imaging informatics.
It's a pleasure to meet you all.
I've been a member of this forum for a while but somehow missed this thread to introduce myself to the group.
I'm an informatics professional based in the United Kingdom and working mainly for the National Health Service on Clinical System IT projects all over the country.
Hi Mina, welcome to the forum!
My name is Kelly Johnson. I have 19 years experience in the industry, working first on the payor side for five years, and then for the past 14 years on the provider (physician group/hospital) side. I currently work for The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (Medical School), as the Performance (Financial) Administrator. I have an MBA, but I have been considering going back to school for a second masters degree. I can't decide between a masters degree in Health Informactic, or a masters degree in Forensic Accounting. So, I thought I would join this forum to learn more about Health Informatics, and maybe it will help me with my decision. I look forward to interacting with the group.

I am a pediatric nurse. I am back in school for my Bachelor's degree. I am taking a course called Nursing Informatics and thougt this would be a great place to learn about informatics outside of my course work.
Nice to meet you!
Nice to meet you all!
I am a Medical Coding student at Flathead Valley Community College. I joined this forum as an assignment for my Records Management class.
I am studying medical informatics master. I graduated from computer education and instructional technology department, but I decided to continue my education with medical informatics. Currently, I am studying on mobile health applications, specifically for patient with diabetes.
I am looking to learn about what is going on with the health informatics in other countries and educational opportunities of health informatics. That's why I've registered for this forum.
I wish you all a healthy life.
I am a M.B.Ch.B Medical Doctor from Nigeria. I am very interrested in health informatics and hope to start up an EMR vendor in Nigeria, with its over 2000 hospitals and clinics..I hope my country is ready, as she can't boast of constant power suply and there is low computer literacy. However, I am tired of the poor flow of patient care, the many human errors, the redundancy and the lack of records. So I want to know as much as I need to get a team together to bring automation to healthcare in Nigeria. If you want to help, join me!

I moved to New Zealand to do my PhD at the University of Auckland last year. I'm interested in eHealth innovations and the change they bring about in the health systems. My BSc is in Biomedical engineering and I took my Master in IT systems, where I became interested in eHealth and health informatics.
