She has led funded research related to national efforts to standardize health care vocabularies and serves in leadership roles including the ANA’s NIDSEC Committee, the AMIA-NIWG Leadership Group, AONE Technology Task Force, TIGER, the Vanderbilt Terminology Summit Steering Committee, and Co-Chair of Walmart’s Consumer Awareness of HIT Committee.

Dr. Androwich’s passion for health informatics poured the foundation for the I-PATH project, as health information sharing is at the core of I-PATH’s inter-professional collaboration mantra. She has always been a proponent of clear communication between all parties involved in clinical care, especially nurse related information capture. Her skills as an educator and champion of collaborative health care make her a natural for guiding the I-PATH program.
