Dr. Deborah Fitzsimmons is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences,
School of Health Studies, Western University. She has extensive health care management
and health informatics experience with community, acute and provincial organisations.
Whilst her doctorate focused on health care costing and the information systems
underpinning them, her research has expanded to consider the implementation (and barriers
to implementation) of health technology, particularly telehealth home monitoring systems.
