About William Hogan
Dr. Hogan is Director of the Division of Biomedical Informatics in the Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics, Director of Biomedical Informatics for the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at the University of Florida, and Director of Informatics for the statewide OneFlorida Clinical Research Consortium. He is the co-principal investigator on OneFlorida’s Clinical Data Research Network, which makes OneFlorida part of the National Patient Centered Clinical Research Network or PCORnet. OneFlorida is one of just 9 Clinical Research Networks in PCORnet 2.0 nationwide. Dr. Hogan is a Professor in the College of Medicine, Department of Health Outcomes and Policy at the University of Florida. To these endeavors, he brings over 20 years of experience in development and implementation of large informatics systems, electronic health records, healthcare data warehouses at three institutions and the OneFlorida Data Trust, the National Retail Data Monitor for biosurveillance, and a suite of research informatics applications used in the National Children’s Study. Dr. Hogan is an accomplished researcher and practitioner of biomedical informatics, with expertise and research interests in biomedical ontology and terminology, electronic health records, research informatics, and biosurveillance. He has authored over 60 journal publications and peer-reviewed papers at conferences and has been principal investigator or co-investigator on over $90M of grant funding.
Dr. Hogan has research interests and expertise in biomedical ontology and terminology, translational science, the reuse of clinical and administrative data—especially electronic health record data—in research, and the development and deployment of large-scale informatics systems that span the state of Florida and the nation. He also has a strong research interest in the fundamental ways in which information is structured and represents biomedical reality, as well as how mismatches between information and reality impact data and information quality. Dr. Hogan has led or played a significant leadership role in the successful creation, implementation, and ongoing operation of (1) a national system for biosurveillance using point-of-sale data of over-the-counter healthcare products, (2) a system used for biosurveillance in Pennsylvania (the success of which led to several additional state and county health departments adopting the system), (3) a suite of open-source software applications for use in clinical and translational science both at a single institution and at multiple institutions participating in the National Children’s Study, (4) institutional and state-wide integrated data repositories in support of research, (5) electronic health records.
