The University of Florida at Gainesville has tapped Dr. William Hogan to lead its growing medical informatics
Hogan, 45, serves as director of biomedical informatics at UF's Clinical and Translational Science Institute. He also is a faculty member within UF College of Medicine's health outcomes and policy department. The appointments were effective June 1.
Hogan oversees the institute's development of research and training programs, which use big data to analyze and create patient-care solutions. Previously, he was the head of the biomedical informatics division at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock.
“The University of Florida understands that fundamental, paradigm-changing transformations in how we collect, manage and apply information to society's problems are not only necessary but close to a tipping point,” Hogan said in a news release. “UF also has numerous, talented teams working in relative isolation on this challenge, and so being given the opportunity to lead and coordinate these groups toward a common goal is a privilege and tremendously exciting.” Follow Bob Herman on Twitter: @MHbhermanHave news to share about executive comings, goings or promotions?
