Research at the center will focus on the use of information technology to support problem solving and decision making that optimizes patient outcomes, said Zhang, holder of the Dr. Doris L. Ross Professorship and associate dean of research at the UTHealth School of Health Information Sciences. This area of informatics is called patient-centered cognitive support.

The NCCD, which will carry out six research projects, is a collaborative initiative involving the University of Washington, Arizona State University, University of Maryland College Park, Baylor College of Medicine, Intermountain Healthcare, Department of Veterans Affairs and Baylor Health Care System. The center will be housed in the new UTHealth Behavioral and Biomedical Sciences Building.

I think the idea of engaging our university's experts to address the challenge of improving the ways physicians and other health professionals can take full advantage of the information embedded in electronic health records is a fabulous idea. My hat is off to Dean Smith and his faculty, including Drs. Jiajie Zhang, Vimla Patel and Edward Shortliffe," said Peter J.A. Davies, M.D., Ph.D., Provost and Executive Vice President for Research at UTHealth.

Shortliffe, a member of the Institute of Medicine, will serve as the Chair of the Project Advisory Board which is composed of researchers, patients, providers, HIT vendors, and other stakeholders from across the nation.
