Awarding of Dr. Frank Naeymi-Rad and Dr. Theresa A. Kepic Scholarship for Biomedical Informatics

We are pleased to announce the awarding of the Dr. Frank Naeymi-Rad and Dr. Theresa A. Kepic Scholarship for Biomedical Informatics to Mr. Raja Cholan. Mr. Cholan is a student in the Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics Program at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU).

The $25,000 scholarship will allow Mr. Cholan to complete his graduate studies and undertake a project using the Intelligent Medical Objects (IMO) clinical terminology appliance. Mr. Cholan’s project will use IMO’s clinical quality measures (CQM) dashboard to identify codes from CQM value sets that are not covered in CQMs at OHSU in order to better understand the usage of these codes and to assess the impact of these missing codes on CQM performance.

Dr. Naeymi-Rad is the founder of IMO and an expert in the application of standards-based terminology solutions to problems in healthcare. Dr. Kepic is an Obstetrics & Gynecology physician who practices in North Chicago, IL.
