Program: PhD Health Informatics

Eunsuk Chang

Program: PhD Health Informatics

Research Interests: I am interested in the clinical decision support features of electronic health records (EHR), especially in time-based checking, protocol support, and reactive alerts/reminders in acute and chronic disease management settings. I am also interested in EHR as a research tool; it will transform how the evidence in medicine is established (from "evidence-based medicine" to "practice-based medicine") by collecting the real-world data on how healthcare providers manage various patients within different contexts.

Ashley Griffin

Program: PhD Health Informatics

Research Interests: I study digital health interventions for chronic disease self-management, including mobile apps, chatbots, wearables, and remote monitoring devices. I'm interested in designing, developing, and evaluating these interventions to ensure they meet patients' needs and positively impact self-management skills and health outcomes.
