Biography

Trained in medicine and with a computer science PhD in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Professor Coiera has a research background in both industry and academia and a strong international research reputation for his work on decision support and communication processes in biomedicine.

Coiera spent 10 years at the prestigious Hewlett-Packard Research Laboratories in Bristol UK where he led numerous health technology projects. He has overseen the development and trial of multiple eHealth interventions, including the Healthy.me consumer system as well as clinical decision support systems. Healthy.me technologies underpin a new US health startup called Healthbanc. His textbook Guide to Health Informatics is in its 3rd edition, is widely used internationally, and is translated into several languages.

Coiera has won a number of prestigious awards including the 2015 International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA) François Grémy Award for Excellence and the 2011 UNSW Inventor of the year (Information and Communication Technology) for a literature-based computational discovery system.

He was elected Foundation Fellow and first President of the Australian College of Health Informatics, is a foundation member of the International Academy of Health Sciences Informatics, and an International Fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics.

Coiera has also held key appointments on boards, councils and editorial positions on international journals including Associate Editor of the journal ‘Artificial Intelligence in Medicine’.
