The following members have nominated for the Management Board and will be voted for by individual members.
Background in Medicine and Information Systems and have been involved in openEHR since 2001 - I've been 'breathing' openEHR ever since! Currently Localisation Program leader and also involved in other programs' activities. I'm pretty well connected with the community and have the strong desire and now time and other resources to contribute more to openEHR and take it to the next stage. So instead of complaining about the Foundation I'm actually standing up to be given a chance to take responsibility and move openEHR community forward. Currently based at the University of Auckland in New Zealand with a joint appointment with Auckland Bioengineering Institute and National Institute for Health Innovation. Running multiple openEHR projects and either lead or take part in key national organisations responsible for health information and health IT. I'm particularly interested in using openEHR as the semantic platform for health research and analytics. Also serving as vice-chair of HL7 New Zealand and have strong links to the emerging FHIR development group. My goal is to align both formalisms as early and as much as possible. I can see they will need to complement each other for wide-spread and sustainable adoption.
I have been working as a major consultant of Brazilian Government for the establishment of the National EHR program. OpenEHR is the official direction for health information exchange in Brazil, since publication of the Ministerial Act 2073/2011. The distinguish characteristic of the Brazilian EHR program is a model for implementing EHR based on use cases with identified business value. I have lead the development of this strategy and have followed its development since 2011. I have also lead the consulting team that was responsible for planning the SNOMED-CT (w/ OpenEHR) and the National Clinic Terminology Release Center, which will also drive OpenEHR models for national-wide usage. I have implemented the local deployment of CKM (Ocean Informatics) as the National repository for clinic knowledge artifacts, which include OpenEHR archetypes and templates, as well as terminology ref sets. I hold a PhD in Electrical Engineering (2004) and have 15+ years as government IT consultant (C-level), with specialization in health informatics. I have a permanent position as associate professor at the University of Brasilia, where I currently supervise several graduate students working in health informatics. Recently, I published a book on Cloud Computing (http://servicetechbooks.com/cloud) – cloud-based EMR and EHR systems are also on my research field. My intent is to foster OpenEHR adoption in Brazil and share our experience on national-wide EHR development efforts, based on the OpenEHR model.
I am a professor of Informatics/eHealth at Örebro University in Sweden. I have been involved in IT for health for 40 years, in different roles, as a medical researcher, a physician, a systems developer and entrepreneur in small and medium sized companies and finally working for academia. I have had a special interest for semantic international interoperability and have been working for openEHR since early 2000 and I have had interesting roles in leading formal standardization. e.g. chairman of CEN/TC 251 1997-2006, Founder of ISO/TC 215, head of delegation and leader of its security work for six years. Chairman of the first attempt to organize co-operation between the seven major international bodies and WHO in the eHealth Standardization Co-ordination Group. I have extensive experience from multinational heatlh informatics R&D projects in Europe.
