Dr Claudia PagliariDr Pagliari is Senior Lecturer in Primary Care at the University of Edinburgh, where she leads the eHealth Interdisciplinary Research group and directs MSc programmes in Health Informatics and Health Information Governance. Her research explores the design, diffusion, and impacts of healthcare ICT, from the perspective of clinicians, organizations, patients and society.  This encompasses rigorous evaluations, formative studies to inform system improvement, qualitative studies of factors affecting implementation, scientific literature reviews and foresighting studies. She has authored a number of policy-relevant reports on eHealth for agencies such as NHS SDO (eHealth 2005), the Nuffield Trust (Personal Health Records 2007), NHS Connecting for Health (Impact of health IT on Quality and Safety, 2008, 2010) and the Wellcome Trust (Critical Issues for Electronic Health Records, 2009), in addition to empirical evaluations of clinician- and patient-facing systems.  She is currently evaluating a range of telehealthcare interventions, clinical practice guidelines on patient access to records, and public acceptability of record sharing for research (as part of the Scottish Health Informatics Programme), amongst other projects. This is complemented by a strand of methodological research centered on optimising interdisciplinary and academia-industry collaboration in eHealth.
