The primary research area of Jung Wei (Jungwei) Fan, Ph.D., is translational informatics. He applies informatics methods to facilitate knowledge management and delivery in the health care setting. He leverages both structured and unstructured clinical data to promote well-informed decision-making.
Dr. Fan's work contributes to the automation of evidence-based medicine by integrating practice recommendations into clinical systems. The other major agenda in his research is to generate reusable knowledge from real-world clinical practice and outcome information buried in various data sources. These components ultimately converge to serve the goal of improving quality in patient care.
Translational informatics delivers data-driven tools to empower clinicians and patients. Dr. Fan's work promotes the efficient use of existing medical knowledge at the point of care. His research also establishes a feedback loop for eliciting insights from real-world clinical practice to refine existing knowledge. Dr. Fan's research methods are meant to be applicable across different conditions and to enable iterative quality improvement in patient care.
