Farah Magrabi is a Professor of Biomedical and Health Informatics at the Australian Institute of Health Innovation, Macquarie University. She has a background in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering and is an expert in the design and evaluation of digital health and artificial Intelligence (AI) 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 major contributions 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 twice identified as the national research leader in the field of Medical Informatics in 2018 and 2020 by the Australian; and is the third most highly rated Patient Safety expert in Australia across the years 2010-2021 according to expertscape. Farah was elected to Fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics in 2020; and to Fellow of the International Academy of Health Sciences Informatics in 2021 which is one of the highest international honours in the field of biomedical and health informatics. She is an inaugural recipient of Telstra Health’s Brilliant Women in Digital Health award (2021).
Farah is currently investigating the patient safety risks and effectiveness of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare. She leads the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Digital Health's Safety research stream; 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).
