Richard Moldwin, M.D., Ph.D.
Dr. Moldwin has worked in biomedical informatics for over 30 years. His clinical training was in pediatric hematology/oncology, and his biomedical research focused on T cell immunology, leukemia, and stem cell transplantation. His past bioinformatics projects have involved computation of protein structure, development of software for immunologic assay analysis, creation of databases for clinical management and biospecimen research, and the creation of clinical content management software. Since 2006, he has worked at the College of American Pathologists (CAP) on the development of interoperable data representations for the management of cancer data, and he leads the development and implementation of CAP’s “electronic Cancer Checklists.” As part of the effort to encourage widespread adoption of the eCC content and interoperability model, he works closely with collaborators from AJCC, ASCO, CDC, HL7/FHIR, IHE, NAACCR, NCI, NLM, ONC, and others, including many EHR vendors. eCC implementations have been very successful in Ontario, and further eCC implementation work is now focused on the state of California, with a strong emphasis on streamlining data collection processes for cancer registries. The eCC team has been working with ONC and others to develop a closely-related interoperability model called “Structured Data Capture.”
