Suranga Kasthurirathne, PhD

  • Research Scientist, Clem McDonald Center for Biomedical Informatics, Regenstrief Institute
  • Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Indiana University School of Medicine

Dr. Suranga Kasthurirathne is a research scientist whose interests include messaging standards, syndromic surveillance, informatics interventions in resource-constrained environments and the application of data analytics and machine learning in support of precision medicine and access to care.

His undergraduate degree was in software engineering from the University of Westminster, UK. His interest in medical informatics was kindled in 2010 after he volunteered for the OpenMRS project, a large open-source medical record platform co-founded by the Regenstrief Institute. He contributed to various healthcare analytical efforts while earning a PhD in health and biomedical informatics from Indiana University.

“Clinical data repositories can only represent one side of a patient’s story. For a more complete picture, we must explore a wider range of non-clinical data that presents how the patient interacts with their environment, and how this contributes to their health and wellbeing.”
