E. LaVerne Manos, DNP, RN-BC, is the program director for the Master of Science in Health Informatics program at the KU School of Nursing. Dr. Manos is also program director for the Simulated E-hEalth Delivery System (SEEDS) partnership between KU Medical Center and Cerner Corporation as well as a member of the core team in the interprofessional education center at the University of Kansas.

Dr. Manos is recipient and principal investigator/project director of a 3-year $998,000 HRSA grant. The Interprofessional Collaborative Acute Care Practice ICAP-Peds project will help at-risk children and their families transition smoothly from hospital to home to follow-up care. The grant team will facilitate the training and organization of interprofessional care teams skilled at developing comprehensive transitional care plans. Several innovative training techniques will be utilized to improve care and patient outcomes.

An invited member of the Task Force on Informatics-related Roles and Categorization, Dr. Manos serves with peers assembled by the executive leadership of the American Medical Informatics Association to develop a structure for describing and categorizing the varying roles, functions and related certification needs among individuals working in biomedical informatics, health informatics and related fields.
