We are delighted to announce that Adam Wilcox, PhD, has accepted a faculty position as Professor in our Department effective January 1, 2016. He will also serve as the new Chief Analytics Officer for UW Medicine. As he stated in his application for this position, he has a vision of using data and analytics to advancing the healthcare strategy at UW Medicine, including personalized medicine and population health. He believes in a model that integrates data, analytics and clinical decision support to effectively improve the quality and effectiveness of care delivery. He has broad experience in both applied and research informatics. Dr. Wilcox completed a double major in 1995 in Physics and Mathematics at the University of Utah. He then obtained his PhD in 2000 in Medical Informatics at Columbia University (Advisor George Hripcsak). Dr. Wilcox worked with the informatics group at Intermountain Healthcare under Paul Clayton from 2001-2006, where he led the development and implementation of primary care and emergency medicine systems, while also researching the effectiveness of care managers in an advanced practice model that was a precursor to the patient-centered medical home. While at Intermountain, he was also faculty at the University of Utah, where he taught courses and lectures in research design and decision support. He was then faculty at Columbia University from 2006-2013, where he directed the legacy clinical information system, clinical data repository and data warehouse, and was also principal investigator of the Washington Heights/Inwood Informatics Infrastructure for Comparative Effectiveness Research (WICER) project, one of the country's first population health research databases, funded by AHRQ. He arrives most recently from Intermountain Healthcare where he led Intermountain’s clinical decision support efforts and directed its analytic health repository. In 2015, Dr. Wilcox was appointed a member of the PCORI Methodology Committee. He is an elected fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics, is a senior editor for eGEMs, and serves on the Clinical Informatics Subcommittee for the American Board of Preventive Medicine, which administers the board examination for the clinical informatics subspecialty. He has authored over 100 book chapters, peer-reviewed articles and abstracts, and has presented at conferences and institutions across the country.
