Liliana Laranjo

Liliana Laranjo

My name is Liliana Laranjo.  I am a Research Fellow at the Centre for Health Informatics—Australian Institute of Health Innovation, Macquarie University.

My background includes a medical degree (2007), General Practice Fellowship (Portugal, 2014), a Master of Public Health from Harvard University (2013), and a PhD with Honours and Distinction (Lisbon Medical School, October 2015). My PhD thesis was entitled ‘Person-centred care and health information technology in Portugal – implications for chronic care and health quality improvement’ and reflected my early interest in Health Services Research. 

My postdoctoral research has been focused on person-centred health informatics, particularly the design, development, and implementation of informatics interventions for patient activation, chronic disease management, and primary prevention. As a physician, I have always been interested in person-centred care and health services quality improvement, a perspective that I actively maintain and seek to apply in my research.

As an Early Career Researcher, I already have a national and international profile for my work in health informatics. I have authored peer-reviewed publications with several institutions worldwide and published in the best journals in my field. In the past 5 years, I was an invited speaker in 5 conferences (4 international) and keynote speaker in 2 international conferences. I have been an Editorial board member for the BMJ Open since 2016 and I regularly review for the peak international journals in my field.

I believe I can add considerable value to the Association by advocating for—and promoting excellence in—health services research. I am very motivated to advance the Association’s mission, as well as contribute to its activities with my time, expertise, and enthusiasm.
