A graduate in Health Information Science from the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Dr. Craig Kuziemsky joined the Telfer School of Management as Assistant Professor in June 2007. He also has undergraduate degrees in Medical Laboratory Science and Commerce from the University of Alberta. Craig teaches courses in the Master of Health Administration (MHA) and Master of Science Health Systems programs as well as at the undergraduate level.
Healthcare delivery is becoming increasingly complex as it shifts from care provided by a single provider and setting to collaborative care provided by multiple providers across multiple settings. The fundamental challenge is that our existing healthcare system is not designed to support collaborative care delivery. Thus, we need new methodologies and models for representing collaboration and information and communication technologies (ICTs) to support it.
Craig's research is developing a novel methodological approach for integrating the diverse information flows and work processes of collaborative healthcare teams. This research will design ICTs to integrate the different healthcare providers who make complex decisions based on different levels of knowledge while they work at different locations.
