The Global Health Informatics Program invites you to tune into its YouTube channel to check out the 2022 Fall Speaker Series.

Session One

What is global health informatics? Why is it critical to advancing healthy lives for all?
One of the most profound changes in the past decade has been the widespread proliferation of technology and data science in health care, such as electronic health records and patient registries. However, health technology adoption has not been equitable, and many developing countries still require support for the development and use of digital data in health care.Cross-sector collaborations amongst health care and technical communities from both developed and developing countries have a critical role in harnessing the potential of technology and data science in health care communities to improve health for everyone, everywhere.

Session Two

What does a global health informatics collaboration look like?
Real-life examples and usecases of technology-enabled breakthroughs in resource-constrained settings. This seminar will feature panelist Dr. Carrie Kovarik, Prof. of Dermatology at UPenn; Dr. Faulkenberry, Co-Chair of Global Health Informatics at CHOP, and two Snr. Lecturers from University of Botswana, Dr. Audrey Masizana and Mr. Kagiso Ndlovu. Panelist will discuss global health informatics collaborations, using examples of technology-enabled breakthroughs in resource-constrained settings.

Session Three

Digitizing Health Data Through Global Health Partnerships
In this session we will highlight both successes and failures in clinical care, data science/education, capacity building and global health principles. We will hear from CHOP Global Health Informatics Chair, Dr. Sansanee Craig and visiting Fulbright Scholar, Dr. Leonard Mauco.

Session Four

Information Technology Innovations To Meet Health Needs Globally
In this session, Dr. Terry Cullen, Dr. Paul Biondich, and Dr.Boonchai Kijsanayotin will review the technical innovations happening globally to connect health information data. We will discuss population health informatics, FHIR/WHO efforts, interoperability/data standards and funding opportunities that researchers at CHOP/Penn can apply for.
