The School of Science and Engineering invites everyone to the SOSE Lecture

Informatics in Health and Biomedical Research


Dr. Romulo De Castro

Balik Scientist


October 21, 2015

Faber Hall 101

4:30pm – 6:00pm


With the growing rise of informatics in the area of health, it is necessary
to present a balanced overview of electronic health records (EHR) - the
motivation for adoption, potential benefits in health and research,
challenges in practice/utilization, and doctor/patient concerns. The
presentation will also delve into meaningful use of health systems as well
as health information exchanges, and cite examples of implementation.
Lastly, localizing to the Philippine setting, the presentation ends with a
discussion on disasters and relevance of EHRs.
