Mark Braunstein

Mark Braunstein

Mark Braunstein, MD, an author and thought-leader in the field, teaches health informatics in the School of Interactive Computing of the College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  After a successful career as a health IT entrepreneur, he joined Georgia Tech in 2007 as a Professor of the Practice.  He developed the first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in the field and his unique health informatics graduate seminar was the first to be centered on HL7’s Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR) standard.  In it, student teams work with domain experts to solve problems that often involve analytics.

He is currently based at the Australian eHealth Research Centre in Brisbane and is teaching at the University of Queensland this semester to create a course like his graduate seminar in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering.  He is working with UQ faculty and CSIRO developers to create a FHIR –based platform for Case Based Learning in medical education.

Dr. Braunstein is actively involved with HL7’s development of the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR) standard and in efforts at the CDC to use FHIR as a ‘universal platform’ for public health surveillance.  He is also collaborating with Open mHealth to bring their schema for representing data from patient operated apps and devices into the FHIR standard.

His latest book is Health Informatics on FHIR: How HL7’s New API is Transforming Healthcare.  He recently released a FHIR based series of open, public MOOCs on the edX platform.

He earned a BS from MIT in 1969, an MD from the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in 1974 and served as a medical resident at Washington University in St Louis.

He was a 1996 Entrepreneur of the Year Award for the Southeast Region, received a 1995 Innovation in Medical Management Award from the American Society of Physician Executives and received the 2006 Founder’s Award from the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce, Southeast Region.  In 2013 he was honored as a Distinguished Alumnus by MUSC’s College of Medicine.
