Purpose of the Institute
The Institute for Health Informatics educates students and conducts research in the fields of biomedical and health informatics. In that work it focuses on the design, use, and evaluation of information systems that support and improve healthcare while protecting the safety and confidentiality of those who receive that care. It is an interdisciplinary endeavor that encompasses work in a variety of settings from tertiary care hospitals to specialty clinics, mental health facilities, community clinics, nursing homes, and home care agencies.
The Institute's scope of research ranges from methodologic development in natural language processing to design of standard terminologies and ontologies and includes testing and evaluation of electronic health record systems, design and testing of better ways of presenting information to improve decision making and designing and implementing information systems to support clinical research.
The Institute for Health Informatics leads the interprofessional discovery, application, and teaching of health information sciences to improve the health of individuals and communities.
