Idris Adjerid, PhD, an assistant professor at the University of Notre Dame, was bestowed the Young Research award for his studies on the economics of privacy and the impact of health IT on patient outcomes and costs at the annual Conference on Health IT and Analytics.

Dr. Adjerid's recent work focuses on the use of health information exchanges and Medicare spending. With two other researchers, he discovered that, if implemented nationally, HIEs could potentially save billions of tax dollars.

The conference was hosted by the Center for Health Information & Decisions Systems in Washington, D.C., from Nov. 3-4. It centered on the economics of healthcare IT and analytics in the information science field.
