USF Health IS to present research at AAMC

Three USF Health Information Systems (IS) research submissions have been selected for full session presentations at the upcoming 2016 Information Technology in Academic Medicine Conference. The conference, sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Group on Information Resources (GIR), will be held June 1-3 in Toronto, Canada.


Patrick Gall, Alice Wei and Adam Tobias are part of the USF Health IS team selected to present their research.

AAMC research presentations include:

Patrick Gall, assistant vice president of solution development and health applications, will discuss his research findings on “USF Health: Breaking the Epic community connect model, a 450 provider practice live in 7 Months!” The presentation is focused around knowledge gained by implementing Epic for USF Health digital records, both as a large community connect model and in a compressed time frame.

Alice Wei, director of digital innovation, will present research on a newly developed mobile application; “Slaying the lottery dragon in 10 weeks and other stories of agile mobile development.” The presentation will focus on USF Health IS business process automation, using the Appian platform for multiple processes within the Morsani College of Medicine, including the lottery. The lottery application is an automated system of pairing forth-year medical students with their selected courses, providing a high percentage of successful first-choice selections.

Adam Tobias, director BI & analytics, will present on the topic “Data Governance: The building blocks for an effective strategy,” and will share expertise on how to model an effective data governance strategy. Data governance provides the framework which outlines how an organization’s information assets, or data, are defined, stored, and managed. Also within that process, deciding who is responsible for governing definitions and use. It provides the consumers of the data a consistent understanding so that there is a single version of truthful outcomes.

Two additional poster submissions were selected for the conference; one by Kristy Andre on the “USF Health IS Relationship management program,” and also research by Marcus Session on a “Virtual Desktop computing program.”
