Jodyn Platt, PhD, MPH is an Associate Professor of Learning Health Sciences at the University of Michigan. Trained in medical sociology and health policy, her research focuses on issues at the intersection of informatics and ethics. She is interested in understanding what makes data-driven health trusted and the pathways for earning, achieving, and sustaining trust across stakeholders. Dr. Platt is the AcademyHealth and ABIM Foundation Senior Scholar in Residence (2022-2024) advising on issues of measuring and building trust. Her recent work, largely funded by NIH, examines public, patient, and other stakeholder perspectives on policy for data and information in precision oncology and the use of AI/ML in Clinical Decision Support. The goal of this work is to identify factors that influence trust in complex information systems and to develop evidence-based and actionable recommendations that can inform issues of institutional, state, and federal health policy.
