David A. Dorr, M.D., M.S., professor and vice chair, Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology (DMICE), has been appointed OHSU’s chief research information officer (CRIO). Dr. Dorr’s major activities in this role will be to facilitate technology and software systems to support the innovation of OHSU researchers, with a focus on clinical and translational informatics, computational techniques, implementation science and clinical research.
“This is exciting not only for David, who will be able to advance his informatics leadership role,” said DMICE chair William Hersh, M.D., “but also for the university, which needs coordinated informatics leadership across all missions, including research, clinical care, and education. I also hope there will be synergy with the academic activities of our department, leading to more advances in the use of informatics to improve health, healthcare, and research.”
