Population Health Informatics: Challenges, Opportunities, and Case Studies

Dr. Hadi Kharrazi is an assistant professor of health policy and management at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, and the research director of the Center for Population Health IT. His research focuses on the application of informatics in risk stratification, and the effect of data type and quality in predicting utilization.

His presentation will focus on “population health informatics,” a growing field of research in the informatics community. He will introduce his center at Johns Hopkins; provide a working definition for population health informatics and discuss its top challenges and opportunities; and, then present a number of research projects that he has led at the Johns Hopkins Center for Population Health IT.

Dr. Kharrazi is a senior clinical informatician with specialization in EHR platforms, Health Information Exchange (HIE), and Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS). Dr. Kharrazi's longterm research interest is in contextualizing CDSS in PHI platforms to be utilized at different HIT levels of managed care such as EHR platforms or consumer health informatics solutions. 

In addition, Dr. Kharrazi has developed more than a dozen courses in health informatics and is currently the director of the DrPH Informatics track program at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, and the co-director of the PhD program in Health Informatics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine’s Division of Health Sciences Informatics.
