He then enrolled in the Medical Informatics training program at the University of Pittsburgh, earning an M.S. in Intelligent Systems and Medical Informatics certificate in 1999. Since then he was worked for healthcare providers implementing electronic health records and tying together disparate systems, for industry, and in academic biomedical informatics.


Dr. Hogan has expertise in clinical informatics, public health informatics, biosurveillance, electronic health records, clinical decision support, research informatics, and data standards in clinical, research, and public health information systems. His current research studies how formal ontology can improve reuse of information and enable the construction of larger systems and datasets to improve patient care, research, public health, and education. He also has experience in the study of data and algorithms for early case and outbreak detection in infectious disease.
