CAHIIM Fall Festival 2020

Dates: Oct 19, 2020 - Oct 19, 2020
Date: Oct 19, 2020


This day's presentations will focus on the challenges and opportunities that are present in today's world as we continue to navigate through this global pandemic.  Our keynote speaker, Jim Carroll, will address new strategies around innovation and its importance in this new age of rapid transformation.  As Covid-19 is demonstrating to us, we aren't too far away from a new era of real time analytics and location-intelligence capabilities which provide for community-wide monitoring of emerging health care challenges of all sorts, not just those pandemic related. We are likely to witness more change in the scientific and technological world of health care in the next ten years than we have seen in the last 25. Jim will put into perspective why innovation is no longer just a fashionable phrase — it’s the critical new leadership focus for executives in the health care sector.

The growth of remote work and digital information dissemination has exposed us to an onslaught of misinformation and disinformation. While this has affected political discourse, it also carries implications for online education, research and study.  Dr. Paris draws from her research around different modes of data management within information systems to discuss some of the challenges presented by data manipulation online and potential solutions.

October Speakers-1BRITT S. PARIS
Britt S. Paris is a critical informatics scholar studying how groups build, use, and understand information systems according to their values, and how these systems influence evidentiary standards and political action.

Dr. Paris's research and teaching emphasize the following themes:

• Interrogating contemporary discourse and practice around using data-driven technology to solve growing social, political, and environmental problems.

• Uncovering ethical and aesthetic assumptions built into internet infrastructure.

• Understanding the labor, economics, and systems of power that undergird today’s information and communication landscape.

• Community-oriented information systems design—analyzed through the lenses of critical, feminist, and de-colonial theory.

These streams of research focus on developing a broader understanding of the social, political, economic, and historical forces that have shaped our current information and communication environment to allow us to envision new technological systems that might better support the future we want.

Dr. Paris has her MA in Media Studies from the New School in New York City and her PhD in Information Studies from the University of California, Los Angeles. She joined the faculty at Rutgers University as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Library and Information Science in Fall 2019.
