Health Innovation Design and Evaluation (HeIDE) Research Team

The HeIDE Team will improve the quality of evidence used in decision making about information technologies (IT) used for collecting epidemiological data in BC by conducting research about IT use for epidemiological data collection. We will: 

  • assess early technology trials to identify technological, organizational, governance and implementation challenges associated with increased use of IT for collecting epidemiological data;
  • address data quality issues arising from increased use of IT for epidemiological data collection, particularly issues associated with data merging;
  • improve links among researchers, decision makers and technology developers across disciplines who share an interest in e-epidemiology.
