Areas of Expertise



Before his 2000 retirement, Dr. Hahn taught Decision Support Systems in Health Care. He currently lectures on that same topic annually to VM1 students. He also works with the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital’s information system to assure appropriate coding is behind the diagnoses chosen by clinicians. This is so that contribution of those clinical data can be made to clinical repositories such as VMDB.
Hahn currently serves as Immediate Past President of the Veterinary Medical DataBase (VMDB), an organization that receives and stores abstracts of patient discharge information from veterinary teaching hospitals and soon veterinary practices. This national database is available to member institutions for the tracking of animal diseases.
