My brief biography

Dr Alice Mugisha holds a PhD in Health Informatics from the University of Bergen, Norway, a Master of Computer Science (MIS) and a Bachelor of Science in Education (Physics and Maths) from Makerere University, Uganda. She is an assistant lecturer in the Department of Information Technology, School of Computing and Informatics Technology, Makerere University, where she is involved in teaching and supervising of students.

Her research was focused on designing usable mobile data collection forms that are used to collect health data by health workers and researchers both in clinical research trials and in health facilities, specifically in rural areas. The output from this research was a set of design principles that can be adopted by both software developers and form developers to create more usable forms. These design principles were based on input from mobile form users, developers and implementers. She has worked with a number of Health Information Systems such as Data Health Information Systems (DHIS2), Open Medical Records Systems (OpenMrS), Open Data Kit (ODK) and mUzima. Other research interests include user involvement in design, human computer interaction and usability evaluation of electronic health information systems.

Dr Mugisha has disseminated her work through various international journal publications and Health Informatics conferences both in Europe and in the region.
