Professor Kristin Braa is Vice Head of the Department of Informatics, University of Oslo. She is also head of the Information Systems (IS) research group and she is the project manager for the Health Information System Programme (HISP) at the Department of Informatics. Kristin resumed as a Professor in 2009 after 8 years as Research Director in Telenor (mobile operator) where she built up and headed a Research and Innovation center in Malaysia for all Telenor Asian operations.


Kristin's research interest lies in mobile extensions of the open source District Health Information System (DHIS2) software with the aim of generating new knowledge about the development and use of mobile IT in low resource settings. She has recently managed two action research projects: MobiHealth: Developing Health Service Networks through Mobile Solutions in Low Resource Settings (2010-2014); Strengthening national Health Information Systems in the South, NORAD (2010 – 2014). Kristin has a keen interest in the further development of action-research methods to drive innovation, a key success factor for HISP. The focus of her recent research has been to identify innovative ways to support health care workers in rural areas and to extend health systems to reach underserved populations in developing countries. 


Kristin's research vision is to contribute to the development of sustainable information systems that empower communities and allow decision makers to improve coverage and quality of health services. This is best done, she believes, through engaged researchers' active and long-term participation in the strengthening of national health information systems.
