Medical Informatics is the interdisciplinary science of information management in Medicine. My research focuses on studying, developing, and prototyping information management critical to patient care, research, and education. Our research interests include Electronic Medical Records, Cognitive Analysis E.g., human-computer interaction), the role of mobile computing in Medicine, Provider Identification (i.e., matching the right doctor with the right patient), Evidence Based Medicine, Clinical Decision Support, Order Entry Research and Development, and Clinical Trial Information Management.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr. Kannry did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2022 and/or 2023: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company.
