Kathrin Dentler

I am a researcher in the Knowledge Representation and Reasoning group at the Department of Computer Science at the VU University Amsterdam. Currently, I am involved in the EURECA Project (Enabling information re-Use by linking clinical REsearch and Care). The goal of this project is to enable seamless, secure, scalable and consistent linkage of healthcare information residing in electronic health record (EHR) systems with information in clinical research information systems, such as clinical trials.

Before, I worked on my PhD project that focused on semantic interoperability for integration of clinical information and indicators. In this project, I investigated to what extent quality indicators can be measured unobtrusively by leveraging data already collected during the clinical care process, and to what extent current processes, systems and representations must be adjusted to facilitate data-capture at the required quality levels. My promotor is Frank van Harmelen, and my co-promotors are Annette ten Teije, Ronald Cornet and Nicolette de Keizer. The project was in cooperation with the Department of Medical Informatics of the University of Amsterdam, situated at the Academic Medical Center.
