Dr Henry Potts studied Natural Sciences as an undergraduate at the University of Cambridge, and then did a PhD in health psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry (King's College, London) and an MSc in Applied Statistics at the University of Oxford. He initially worked for the Imperial Cancer Research Fund (now Cancer Research UK) in Oxford, with his first position in health informatics being at UCL's School of Public Policy.
He began an association with CHIME in 2001, taking on a part-time contracted position in 2003 and moving there full-time in October 2004. In October 2010, he was promoted to Senior Lecturer.
My research focuses on the adoption of new information and communication technologies in healthcare, including in medical education. Generally, I am coming from a sociotechnical perspective.
Current work includes in m-health (healthcare on mobile phones), where I am developing resources to support the adoption of new services. I look at the use of the Internet, in particular newer models focusing on user-generated content and peer-to-peer support. I also study sociotechnical implications of various health technologies, like electronic healthcare records and decision support systems.
I am a methodologist, with interests particularly in the workings of evidence-based medicine. I also do some work in the interface between risk management and health informatics, with a particular case study being anti-coagulation management.
As well as teaching around my own areas of research, I have long taught statistics (introductory and more advanced) and research methods. I have been using online teaching methods more recently and have some ongoing research around VLEs and Web 2.0 more generally in the context of under- and postgraduate medical education.
