Madhu Reddy is an associate professor in the College of Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State University and a founding member of Penn State’s Center for Integrated Healthcare Delivery Systems. He received his PhD in Information and Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine.
Reddy’s primary research interests are at the intersections of medical informatics and computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW). He is especially interested in the design, implementation and adoption of collaborative healthcare technologies such as electronic patient records. Reddy’s current research is focused on how these and other health information technologies can support collaborative information behavior and decision-making in multidisciplinary patient-care teams. He has published extensively in both the medical informatics and CSCW communities on these issues.
Through his research, he hopes to provide a better understanding of collaboration and collaborative technologies in clinical settings to researchers and practitioners in medical informatics, CSCW, and other fields.
