November 20, 2008

Doug Fridsma, an associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics, has been elected to the Fellowship of the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI).

Fridsma’s research involves the development of tools to study patient safety, clinical work processes, and collaboration between healthcare providers, with a focus on simulation, clinical trials and oncology care.

Selection to ACMI Fellowship is an honor reserved for individuals with typically more than a decade of significant and sustained contributions to medical informatics.

Fridsma is one of the primary developers of the Biomedical Research Integrated Domain Group Project, a division of the Biomedical Informatics Grid Program, the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium and Health Level 7 that is working to develop a comprehensive and formal representation of the shared semantics of clinical trials research.

Fridsma previously was an assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh’s biomedical informatics department.
