Brian E. Dixon, MPA, PhD, FACMI, FHIMSS both teaches and does research in the area of health information exchange. Since 2012, he has taught a course on HIE, first at the IU School of Informatics and Computing and now at the IU Fairbanks School of Public Health. The course covers the fundamentals of information exchange between clinical and public health organizations, focusing on governance, privacy, and technical aspects of developing as well as managing HIE. His research focuses on improving clinical and public health decision-making through innovative processes and technologies that provide comprehensive information on patient and population health. Recent and ongoing work includes leveraging clinical and administrative data in electronic health records from an HIE to improve public health reporting processes, surveillance activities, continuity of care for Veterans, and community health assessment activities.
"...organizes the many societal, technical, organizational, and contextual components needed for health information exchange. The reader will come away with an appreciation of the challenges, complexity, and enormous opportunity for benefit from a successful HIE." --Journal of Biomedical Informatics
