FedHealthIT Interviews CIT Director and NIH Chief Information Officer Andrea Norris
Andrea Norris, CIT’s Director and NIH’s Chief Information Officer, was recently interviewed by FedHealthIT as part of the publication’s recognition of the 2018 FedHealthIT100, in which she was named as one of the FedHealthIT100 in December 2017.
In her interview, Norris discussed the changing IT environment at NIH; partnering with industry, academia, and non-profits to expand datasets and data science at the agency; and possible IT opportunities at NIH for researchers and partners. Here’s an excerpt from her interview:
“We understand that the rich datasets generated at NIH are becoming more important across our institutes and centers, as well as the larger research communities we serve, so we’re also looking at how data is stored and managed so that it is accessible and interoperable across all of the places it is housed. We’ve prioritized data science—investing significantly into related research to help ensure the data is accessible, sustainable, and can be reused appropriately.”
