Prof Malcolm Pradhan

Prof Malcolm Pradhan

Chief Medical Officer, Alcidion

Bio

Malcolm is a medical practitioner with a PhD in Medical Informatics from Stanford University. He is a founding Fellow of the Australian College of Health Informatics, with 25 years experience in commercialising health care technologies.

He was previously a clinical lead for the National e-Health Transition Authority (NeHTA), and Associate Dean for IT in the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Adelaide. Malcolm has a research background in Clinical Decision Support, Decision Theory, Bayesian networks and knowledge representation in health care.

In 2001 Malcolm co-founded Alcidion Corporation where he holds the position of Chief Medical Officer (CMO). Alcidion is a Health Informatics company specialising in smart, simple and safe solutions for improving clinical care and supporting operational innovation. In his role at Alcidion he has overseen the development of the Miya Platform, a Health Informatics platform for clinical decision support and clinical workflow automation.

Malcolm believes that e-Health systems should play an active role in health care to support busy clinicians and patients achieve better health care. This requires an informatics platform that understand clinical information and patient context, and solutions that improve clinical productivity, rather than simply storing and passively displaying clinical data.

Key interests for Malcolm include deep interoperability that supports improving clinical workflows to improve clinical productivity, terminology, patient flow and predictive systems to minimise clinical risk.
