About Christopher A Harle

Dr. Chris Harle is a Professor in the Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics, and the Chief Research Information Officer (CRIO) at UF Health.

Dr. Harle’s research focuses on the design, adoption, use, and value of health information systems. His primary interest is in understanding how information technology-mediated communication tools affect consumer, patient, and provider decisions and behavior. Recently, with funding from Pfizer, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), his research has focused on developing clinical decision support tools to support primary care clinicians in chronic pain care and opioid prescribing. Other recent research, funded by the NIH, focuses on developing interactive electronic informed consent processes for obtaining broad consent from patients to share their electronic health records for research studies.

Dr. Harle holds an MS in Decision and Information Sciences from the University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business Administration and a PhD in information systems and management from Carnegie Mellon University’s H. John Heinz III College.
