Biography 

Dr. Puttkammer’s interests are in strengthening health information systems and promoting data use and for quality improvement of health programs in resource-limited settings. She is trained as a health services researcher, specializing in using observational, routinely-collected data from electronic medical records (EMRs) to strengthen HIV care and treatment programs. In her capacity as a Research and Evaluation Advisor at the International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH), she works with informatics and training projects in Haiti, Kenya, and South Africa to improve large-scale implementation of EMRs, evaluate data quality and data use, support data analyses, and develop capacity for data use and implementation science research among colleagues and counterparts. She has worked with HIV prevention, care and treatment programs in the US, Africa and the Caribbean for more than 20 years.
