Historic ACMI Biography

Profile image
Dr. Grannis has made three significant contributions to the field in the past ten years, any one of which should qualify him for membership in ACMI. First he received the 2002 Martin Epstein award for a novel patient-matching algorithm now used worldwide via the OpenMRS system. Patient matching is critical to accurately link patient data among individual EHRs, which is imperative in health information exchange. Second, he was co-principal investigator on an NLM R01 grant developing and evaluating novel data obfuscation techniques applied to patient-level data while preserving patient privacy and confidentiality. Third, through his leadership founding the Indiana Center of Excellence in Public Health Informatics, Dr. Grannis has created and implemented real-world applications that have impacted on public health in Indiana, nationally, and globally.
