UCL CHIME is Early Contributor to New Health Informatics Online Resource
4 January 2013
One dark Thursday night in December saw Professor Dipak Kalra, Director of UCL CHIME, at home in front of a webcam, being interviewed online by American health informatician Tim Cook and taking live questions from around the world.
The result is now available online, forming part of a new resource named Healthcare IT Live! which aims to go out weekly and cover topics across the healthcare spectrum.
Professor Kalra's contribution, around an hour in length, concentrated on his work on, and attitudes to, such areas as electronic health record interoperability, semantic interoperability, and standards.
Other contributors to the series include Bert Verhees from the Netherlands and Heather Grain from Australia, and the schedule of future shows includes such luminaries as Canada's Denis Protti, Bill Hersh and Edward Shortliffe from the USA and our former UCL colleague Jeremy Wyatt.
