Herman Tolentino, Centers for Disease Control Dr. Herman Tolentino is the Director of the Public Health Informatics Fellowship Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). After completing the CDC informatics fellowship in 2006, he became the first graduate of the fellowship program to serve as its Director since it was established in 1996. A physician and anesthesiologist by training from the University of the Philippines in Manila, he began his interest in computers as a medical student in the 1980s. After completing his anesthesia residency, he assumed the post of Chief Information Officer of the university teaching hospital and facilitated the movement of the teaching hospital into the information age. While practicing and teaching anesthesia he was instrumental in developing a novel SMS-based mobile phone surveillance system to track critical events in the operating room. With his increasing involvement in the use of computers for health care he was awarded a fellowship in medical informatics at the Division of Biomedical and Health Informatics at the University of Washington in 1997 through a grant from the U.S. Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates and trained under the mentorship of Dr. Sherrilynne Fuller. vBefore coming to CDC, he was involved with a project to integrate notifiable disease surveillance systems in the Mekong Basin in collaboration with the WHO Western Pacific Regional Office and the Rockefeller Foundation. During that time he also helped in the promotion and development of health informatics in the Asia Pacific region through his participation in the Asia Pacific Association for Medical Informatics (APAMI) and his leadership of the Philippine Medical Informatics Society. While based in Manila, he helped develop the first graduate, two-track (bioinformatics and medical informatics) program in health informatics in the Philippines. While transitioning from medical practice to informatics, he spent two years working on innovative and award-winning web development projects in the I.T. industry including the first mobilebased application in the country. In 2004, with a small, joint R&D grant from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Development Research Center from Canada (IDRC), he conceptualized and developed the six-year old community-based health information system called the CHITS Project ( while working in city health centers to bring better integrated primary care to the urban poor. This system integrates public health vertical programs at the community level and has been recognized for its unique approach to capacity building and sustainability. For his innovative approach in implementing information systems for the benefit of underserved communities, Dr. Tolentino has received recognition for excellence in the practice of information technology in health at the prestigious Stockholm Challenge in 2005. While a fellow at CDC, he collaborated with the National Library of Medicine and ProMEDMail in the development of EpiSPIDER ( an innovative application that tracks emerging infectious diseases and disasters through the Internet. Because of this contribution, he is considered a pioneer in the field of automated, Internet-based event-based disease surveillance. While wearing his workforce development hat at CDC, he leads the development of innovative approaches to applied learning in public health informatics and works with fellows and partners to address informatics challenges facing domestic and international public health agencies. He is an active member of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA), and the International Society for Disease Surveillance (ISDS) and teaches public health informatics as Adjunct Associate Professor at the School of Public Health, University of Illinois in Chicago. His interests include natural language processing.
