Medical informatics student paper award

Human and Social Development

Health information science PhD candidate Helen Monkman placed second in this year’s International Medical Informatics Association student paper competition, for a paper co-authored by Janessa Griffith (U-Toronto) and Dr. Andre Kushniruk (health information science). Monkman’s paper was one of eight shortlisted in the worldwide competition. “It is always a good news story to have a student win such a prestigious, global award for her valuable research. We are very proud of Helen’s success,” said Elizabeth Borycki, associate professor with the school and vice chair of the association’s patient safety working group. In the paper, the authors developed a novel set of design guidelines which can be used to evaluate health applications for consumers and the general public.
