Dr Matt-Mouley Bouamrane
- Affiliate (General Practice and Primary Care)
- Honorary Senior Lecturer (Institute of Health and Wellbeing)
Dr Matt-Mouley Bouamrane joined General Practice and Primary Care in February 2010 as a CSO Research Fellow in Health Informatics and the Health Services Research, working with Professor Frances Mair on the development of information systems for the integration across primary and secondary care in Scotland of the preoperative assessment of patients prior to surgery.
He graduated as a Bachelor of Electronic Engineering at the Université de Paris-XI, Orsay, followed by a postgraduate diploma in computer engineering (2003) and a PhD in computer science (2006) at the University of Dublin, Trinity College, where he was a member of the Artificial Intelligence Group (AIG). His doctoral research consisted of developing information access and retrieval methods and systems for remote web-based meetings in collaboration with Dr Saturnino Luz.
From 2007 until 2010, Dr Bouamrane was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Manchester within the bio-informatics group of Professor Alan Rector in a knowledge transfer project, working on the development of a knowledge-based preoperative decision support system in partnership with a Scottish SME, Informatics-CIS.
Dr Bouamrane is a member of the EPSRC Digital Inclusion Cluster which promotes the design of digital technology for older and special needs users, and other digitally disenfranchised groups.
Dr Bouamrane's current research, in collaboration with Professor Frances Mair, focuses on the development of information systems for the integration of preoperative assessment across primary and secondary care in Scotland. His main activities consist of identifying processes, workflows and pathways involved in the patient journey from referral in primary care to surgical intervention in secondary care. Knowledge representation and automated reasoning tools are the underlying technology for providing decision support to various health professionals at various stages of the patient journey. He has a keen interest in clinical information interchange standards as well as analysing the impact of technological changes within the health services, identifying barriers to implementation and facilitating successful technological integration within work practices.
His research interests include (but are not limited to):
- Health and medical informatics - Impact of technological changes within the health services
- Telecare - Assisted living - Accessibility - Digital inclusion
- Ambient Intelligence - Adaptive systems
- Information management and retrieval - Clinical information standards
- Knowledge representation and reasoning
- Expert and decision support systems - Models of multi-morbidity
- Human computer interaction – Multimodal interaction
- Computer supported collaborative work – Multi-disciplinary medical team meetings
