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. He is now deputy director of CHIME, which has become part of UCL's new Institute of Health Informatics.
My research focuses on the adoption and use of new information and communication technologies in healthcare from a sociotechnical perspective. Current work focuses on m-health (healthcare on mobile phones) and Personal Health Records. I study other uses 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 also have methodological interests in evidence-based medicine, systematic reviewing and interdisciplinary work.
Most of my teaching is on our two postgraduate programmes, in Health Informatics and in Data Science for Health & Biomedical Research: I run modules on Research Methods and Advanced Statistics in Records Research, and also teach on modules on e-Health, Patient Safety, Principles of Health Informatics, and Using Information in Healthcare Management. I am also the Institute of Health Informatics' Graduate Tutor (Research). I also do some undergraduate teaching (MBBS and Psychology BSc). I teach both with traditional methods, but also in a blended learning environment using Moodle.
