Dr Patrick Pang is a Lecturer at the School of Computing and Information Systems in the Melbourne School of Engineering of the University of Melbourne. He is an Information Systems researcher and a software engineer working in the digital health context. He received his PhD from the University of Melbourne. His research aims to understand how online information, e.g. information from social media and online communities, shapes the behaviour of health consumers, and how they utilise online platforms to select healthcare services. These are vitally important in this big data era as patients are advocated managing their own health and participate in medical processes using technologies. His work advances the design of information systems in this era with patient-centric data, emerging technologies and new forms of communication. He is recognised locally and internationally in prestigious journals and conferences such as Journal of Medical Internet Research (the most-cited digital health journal; recommended by AIS SIG Health), Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems (with one best paper nomination) and Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences.
