Biography

Dr Simon Woodworth is a Lecturer in Business Information Systems, with research interests in Enterprise Systems, Health informatics, Mobile Computing and Data Analytics. He holds a B.Sc. in Computer Science (1988), an M.Sc. in Management Information Systems (2005) and a Ph.D. in Business Information Systems (2013). He is Director of the Health Information Systems Research Centre.

Simon previously spent fifteen years working in the telecommunications sector for both Ericsson and Motorola. He worked in a wide variety of posts, ranging from mobile network customer care in Southeast Asia to commissioning mobile telephone exchanges in locations such as Yemen, Nigeria and Siberia.

Simon teaches undergraduate courses in mobile programming and postgraduate courses in mobile and client – server programming. These courses are delivered in a computer lab environment and make extensive use of mobile, desktop and cloud technologies.

In the last two years, Simon has worked on a number of health informatics research projects, in particular the use of a tablet application to automate patient vital signs capture and calculation of early warning score in the hospital. Current research work also includes the tracking of hypertension in pregnant women in the home with a view to developing an early warning of pre-eclampsia, the tracking of infant early development using a mobile app, and a large scale project to provide mobile apps and decision support and learning tools to better manage large scale disasters in a European context.

 

Research Interests

Information Systems (IS), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

My research is significant as it describes the role of IS in supporting supply chain relationships between a Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) and its Suppliers, Customers, Partners and Competitors and it also describes IS usage for Supply Chain activities internal to the SME
