Evolution has always been driven by change but mainly at a snail’s pace.  The difference now is that change is occurring at an exponential pace.  Almost anything and everything that relates to healthcare is changing. Many of these changes relate to new and developing technologies; to new roles for the stakeholders involved in the delivery of health care; to the delivery of care in new settings; to changing and aging populations; to shifts in responsibilities.  Pick your time frame – from 2020 to 2050 –health care as we know it will change.  Patients will play an increasingly important role in taking responsibility of their own health and decision-making, with delivery of care at the site of the individual.  This seminar will challenge the status quo of today.


Ed Hammond, PhD, is a Professor in Community and Family Medicine and the Director of Duke Center for Health Informatics (DCHI), part of the Clinical and Translation Sciences Institute (CTSI).  Dr. Hammond has been engaged in health informatics research and practice for the past fifty years. His experience in design and implementation of electronic health records, standards development and implementation, creating data elements with rich attribute sets across domains, clinical decision support, and enabling interoperability across heterogeneous groups has provided him a plethora of valued knowledge and experience. As a leader in such organizations as Health Level 7 (HL7), the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the eHealth Initiative, Dr. Hammond has been instrumental to the growth in the field of Health Informatics.

The Informatics Research Seminar Series is sponsored by Duke University and a collaboration with UNC-Chapel Hill, NCCU, UNC-Charlotte, and ECU. This series explores key areas in Health Informatics and include research results, overview of programs of research, basic, applied, and evaluative projects, as well as research from varied epistemological stances.
