Research Expertise

Description

As will be evident from Jane Grimson's publications list, her research has covered a broad and diverse range of topics. However there has been a strong underlying focus on Knowledge and Data Engineering in general, and in particular, on supporting the development of advanced, distributed information systems. Much of the research has been applied in a novel and innovative fashion to the health domain with the result that the main emphasis of her work in recent years falls under the broad heading of Health Informatics. Health Informatics is a strongly inter-disciplinary subject and much of the research has involved working directly with clinicians and healthcare professionals. A guiding principle of much of the work has been on protecting investment in existing legacy systems while at the same time incorporating novel solutions and approaches. System integration issues in health therefore form a central theme as does the closely associated work in Electronic Healthcare Records, both of which leverage earlier research in distributed and federated databases. The core of her research philosophy can be summed up as seeking to develop ways to effectively manage data, information and knowledge in complex, heterogeneous and distributed environments.
