Biographical details

Associate Professor Melissa Baysari is a human factors researcher experienced in both quantitative and qualitative evaluations of health information technology. Her research to date has focused primarily on digital health to support medication management, with a particular focus on the design and evaluation of computerised decision support.

Melissa has published widely in the areas of medication safety, electronic prescribing and decision support and her research has resulted in a number of significant changes being made to electronic medication management systems, as well as to hospital policy and work practices. She has many ongoing collaborations with government, industry and health services, andshe is a Chief Investigator on four NHMRC Partnership grants. She is currently leading an NHMRC Partnership project which comprises the first Australian controlled trial of computerised alerts for hospital prescribers.
