Boston Children's Hospital
Dr. Mandl directs CHIP (TheÂ Computational Health Informatics Program) at Boston Children’s Hospital and is the Donald A.B. Lindberg Professor of Pediatrics andÂ Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School.Â Mandl’s workÂ at the intersection of population and individual health has had a unique, sustained influence on the developing field of biomedical informatics. His Presidential Early Career Award for ScientistsÂ and EngineersÂ was for pioneering real time biosurveillance, tracking infections and detecting outbreaks with diverse data. Mandl has long advocated for patient participation in producing and accessing data. He created the first personal health systems, crowdsourced knowledge from online patient networks, and advanced participatory medicine and engagement in clinical trials.Â Â Cognizant of the limitations of extant electronic health record systems, Mandl developed a widely adopted, highly influential approach (SMART)–substitutable iPHone-like apps that run universally on health IT systems. SMART lets innovators like Apple and Google reach market scale and patients and doctors access an â€œapp store for health.â€ Mandl uses his open source inventions to lead large EHR research networks–heÂ is principal investigator of theÂ Accessible Research Commons for Health (ARCH)Â network across Boston hospitals and nationally. Recognized for teaching, Mandl received theÂ Clifford A. Barger Award for top mentors at Harvard Medical School. He was advisor to two Directors of the CDC and chaired the Board of Scientific Counselors of the NIHâ€™s National Library of Medicine. His clinical training and experience is in pediatrics and pediatric emergency medicine. Dr. MandlÂ has been elected to multiple honor societies including the American Society for Clinical Investigation, Society for Pediatric Research, American College of Medical Informatics and American Pediatric Society. He is a recent recipient of the Donald A.B. LindbergÂ Award for Innovation in Informatics.
