Assistant professor of biomedical and health information
Andrew Boyd researches the use of health care data to simplify processes and make them more accurate and efficient.
He recently analyzed and mapped the complexities of the U.S. healthcare system’s transition from ICD-9, the ninth version of the International Classification of Disease, to the exponentially more complex ICD-10.
Boyd examined of the disparity between vernacular used in everyday practice by physicians and that used by nurses, finding the overlap to be only 20 percent.
He developed an app called My Interventional Drug-Eluting Stent Educational App (MyIDEA) with input from patients on the research team.
Boyd earned his medical degree at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and did postdoctoral work in biomedical informatics at the University of Michigan.
