My main interest is in the application of Health Information Technology, and designing work systems that will improve quality and safety in healthcare.
My aim is to develop my academic study and applied research to find solutions to make health services more effective and efficient.
I am a member of the DOME research consortium for research on the Journalen, in Sweden. See https://domeconsortium.org/
I am a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Medical Informatics (Elsevier) and I am an Associate Editor to the Journal of Behaviour and Information Technology (Taylor & Francis).
The research communities in which I participate include ACM Computer-Supported Collaborative Work and Social Computing (CSCW), ACM INTERACT and IEEE Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS).
Specialties: Health service research, CSCW, HCI, Health IT, IT implementation, clinical laboratory service development, (cell pathology) diagnostic work, team leader, lecturer and tutor. I have a wide range of experience that includes technology implementation, working with HL7, SNOMED, and LOINC standards and coding systems and also with ISO quality work systems. I have particular experience in implementation of ISO 15189.
