Oliver Nguyen, BS, CSSBB
Oliver Nguyen is a second-year master's student studying health informatics with a focus on user experience. He has been volunteering for the last five years in a student-run safety net clinic network to provide free care to patients who are uninsured. Although he started out as their singular individual that handles their data analytics and IT management needs, he began crafting his own group of thirty undergraduates in 2018 to help add more manpower to these tasks. With more volunteers, Oliver shifted to mining clinical data in the EHR to allow the organization to now monitor process adherence and patient outcomes on select chronic conditions. They are also working on creating a state-level databank to pool data among the other student-run free clinics in the state of Florida to facilitate more research on strictly patients who are uninsured. Within the next year or so, Oliver hopes to begin applications to PhD programs to study health IT policy. Broadly, he enjoys studying how the presence or absence of critical data affects the delivery of health care. Specifically, Oliver’s research interests are how EHR design influences physician burnout, the influence that the digital divide between safety net and non-safety net clinics have on patient outcomes; and how information blocking practices by organizations affect patient outcomes and costs.
