My research area is medical data sharing and shared workflows. I focus on three aspects of data use. Firstly, patient access to their own data and how this might impact patient care and quality assurance in health care. Secondly, large datasets and narrative medical text in electronic medical records with the goal to improve quality. Third, structured reporting in radiology and development of multilingual computer assisted translation tool for cross-border teleradiology reporting. During my stay at H-STAR, I am learning how data mining and language processing are enabling use of medical data stored in electronic medical records.
