In the next few weeks, we’ll be launching the Health Informatics Forum Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). The course will cover a wide range of Health Informatics topics using the Open Access curriculum material developed by the Office of the National Coordinator in the US.

At the suggestion of one of the leaders of the curriculum development project, Prof Ed Hammond, we've decided to use our forum to deliver the course to as many people as possible.

Kevin O’Connor, co-founder of DoubleClick , is the CEO of FindTheBest , an unbiased data driven comparison engine, which he established in Santa Barbara, CA. As an entrepreneur, I’ve been invited to guest lecture for entrepreneurial programs at colleges from Harvard to the University of Michigan.
