Kenneth D. Mandl, MD


Director, Computational Health Informatics Program at Boston Children’s Hospital

Donald A.B. Lindberg Professor of Pediatrics and Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School

 Dr. Mandl's work at the intersection of population and individual health has greatly influenced the burgeoning field of biomedical informatics. He pioneered real-time biosurveillance and championed patient involvement in data production and access, leading to the creation of the first personal health and participatory surveillance systems. Dr. Mandl's advancements in 'SMART' programming interfaces, in conjunction with his influence on the 21st Century Cures Act, have streamlined universal access to individual and population health data. These capabilities enhance interoperability in health care systems and foster substantial economies of scale.
