- Professor, UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics
- Directs the biomedical informatics component of the Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences (CCTS), UTHealth
Elmer Bernstam, M.D., a practicing internist specializing in hospital medicine, is leading an initiative to re-use existing clinical data for research purposes. This is a challenge because much of these data come from different settings and may not be compatible. The potential impact of his work in this field is faster and more efficient biomedical discovery using clinical datasets that are already being collected. This research could facilitate discovery of safer, more economical medications and previously unseen correlations between diseases, medications and procedures. Bernstam is an expert in information retrieval, consumer informatics and clinical decision support.
