Co-Principal Investigator, Oncology Standard Health Record
Electronic Health Records
Andre Quina, M.S., specializes in creating and managing teams to develop open source tools for healthcare. He is the co-lead for the Oncology Standard Health Record research project, an initiative defining a national standard for the logical content for electronic health records for cancer.
He has extensive experience in developing solutions to health IT problems. For example, he led the development of a MITRE research initiative called Crucible, which is a comprehensive Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) testing infrastructure and test catalog designed to evaluate the accurate implementation and interoperability characteristics of an FHIR server. He was the associate project lead for MITRE’s Tacoma project, a federally sponsored initiative to enhance the clinical quality improvement framework. The project is championed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. The goal is to unify clinical quality measurement and clinical decision support standards and technology to simplify integration and reporting for providers and improve healthcare delivery.
Mr. Quina earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a master’s degree in computer science from Tufts University.
