I am a medical informatics researcher and pediatrician whose research interests include informatics interventions in resource constrained environments, decision support systems and controlled medical vocabularies. I am the co-founder and leader of OpenMRS, an open source medical record system platform to support underserved populations, which is currently deployed in over 40 countries throughout the world. I also oversee infomatics activities at the first implementation of OpenMRS: the Academic Model for the Prevention and Treatment of HIV (AMPATH) in Eldoret, Kenya. These projects provide a rich substrate that allows me to study these unique environments and learn the effectiveness of various health informatics interventions applied to these settings. I participate in international architectural development efforts, both through my leadership of a WHO Collaborating Centre in Medical Informatics, and in the formation of a new adaptive technical assistance community that supports national planning and implementation of health information sharing architectures (OpenHIE).
