Dr Inga Hunter PGDipObs, MPhil, MA, BA, BMed

Senior Lecturer

School of Management

I am a member of various local, regional, national and Ministry of Health groups, committees and advisory groups responsible for information management in the health care sector. I work part-time as an academic and as a clinical medical doctor so my research has an applied end-user focus, translating end-user research into clinical practice/health sector policy. This research progressed from a sole researcher study showing centralised medical records to be an issue for patients, to two collaborative studies of patients’ attitudes towards information sharing/security of electronic medical records (EMRs. These projects led to the large collaborative first national CATI survey 4000+ on patients attitudes to sharing personal health information HRC funded 2007/8 with high stakeholder interest requiring preliminary findings presentation to inform health policy makers/end-users. Two further collaborative projects, with strong partnership support from Ministry of Health and General Practice New Zealand , brought the topic of safe sharing of health information to the National Health Board. A later project looked at information sharing in the sensitive area of sexual health. This research platform has resulted in collaborations with health organisations/academics nationally, internationally, invited/nominated membership to regional/national policy and/or end user groups including Health Research Council, National Information Clinical Leadership Group, and the Health Information Governance Expert Advisory Group. More recent collaborations are in the areas of IT to support pharmocovigiliance, disaster e-health and smart homes using sensors to support healthy living and care in the home.

I came to Massey University from clinical medical practice in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, completed a Master of Philosophy in Information Systems, and joined the then Department of Information Systems as a lecturer in 1999. I am now employed as a senior lecturer in the School of Management. I work part-time for Massey University and part time in clinical medical practice as a senior medical officer at Palmerston North Hospital. My research interests include health informatics, especially electronic medical records, decision support systems, privacy and confidentiality, mobile technology and smart sensor technologies in health, and now disaster e-health.
