Publishing White Papers has always been of interest to me. I wrote my first white paper on “Evaluation of Digital Certificates adoption in the E-business environment” while in school at Temple University’s Fox School of Business Management.

Wikipedia defines White Paper as

A white paper is an authoritative report or guide that often addresses problems and how to solve them. White papers are used to educate readers and help people make decisions.

White Paper gives Scholarly advice on areas of interest. It brings the business and technology together and influences decision makers to leverage the thoughts into a business case.

My area of research includes but is not limited to the following:

  1. Healthcare Information Systems, e.g. Electronic Medical Records, NHIN, RHIO
  2. Applicability of Game Theory in Healthcare and Information Systems
  3. Social / Human Aspects of Information Systems
  4. Quantitative analysis for Search Engine Optimization
  5. Diminishing Marginal Utility (Giffen Goods)
  6. Application of “Consumer Centric” approach in Health care
  7. Analyzing causes and effects of Internal Spamming

Recently I had been noticing that a lot of my White Papers were being referenced by corporate organizations, universities, standards organizations, clients and even students.

Here are some organizations referencing my work:

  1. Harvard University, John F. Kennedy School of Government : Government Intervention: A Necessary Evil to Increase HIT Adoption?
  2. Medical Group Management Association, MGMA : The Purchasing Power of Today’s Medical Group Practice
  3. University of Brussel (Europe) : Link
  4. Athens University of Economics and Business (Greece) : A flexible model for the delivery of multi-facet information in patient–centric Healthcare Information Systems
  5. OAISYS : Voice Documentation in Healthcare

With writing two whitepapers (Healthcare Today & Organization Security) as my 2009 resolution, I want to continue my belief that “Sharing Knowledge Helps“.
