The international electronic health-data standards-setting organization Health Level Seven has added two new members to its advisory committee: Philip Burstein and Richard Dixon-Hughes.
Burstein is vice president of therapeutic area management, biometrics and data at GlaxoSmithKline, where he leads a team dedicated to utilizing clinical-trial data and observational data in drug discovery and development. "As a clinician who spent many years in practice before coming to the pharmaceutical industry, I am excited and energized by what electronic health-record technology is bringing to the healthcare community," Burstein said in a news release.
Dixon-Hughes is the managing director of the Australian health information-technology consulting company DH4 and deputy chairman of Standards Australia, the country's nongovernmental standards-development body.
