Farah Magrabi is an Associate Professor at the Australian Institute of Health Innovation, Macquarie University. She has a background in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering with over 15 years’ experience in Health Informatics focusing on the design and evaluation of digital health technologies for clinicians and consumers.
Farah’s research seeks to investigate the clinical safety and effectiveness of digital health technologies. She is internationally recognised as a leader in this area, and has made a major contribution to documenting the patient safety risks of digital health by examining safety events in Australia, the USA and England. Her work has shaped policy and practice including a new specification by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO/TS 20405) for the surveillance and analysis of safety events.
In 2015, she received the Sax Institute’s Research Action Award for the international impact of her research on policy and practice to improve digital health safety. She was ranked as Australia’s research Field Leader in Medical Informatics for 2018 and has also been named the Field Leader for 2020.
Farah is currently investigating the patient safety risks of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare. She is co-chair of the Australian AI Alliance’s working group on safety, quality and ethics; co-chairs the International Medical Informatics Association’s (IMIA) working group on Technology Assessment & Quality Development (2013-present); holds a Fellowship at the University of York with the Assuring Autonomy International Programme; and is an Associate Editor of the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (2020-present).
