Health/Medical Informatics Program Area

Medical informatics is concerned with all aspects of understanding and promoting the effective organization, analysis, management, and use of information in health care. The emphasis in the informatics program is on health information technology. Medical Informatics has traditionally supported acute care in hospitals via development and deployment of electronic medical records. Health Informatics is a newer term including information management for chronic care in homes, particularly development and deployment of personal health records. This Area will support students in areas related to healthcare infrastructure, particularly population management of everyday chronic conditions. It includes national healthcare infrastructure, such as development of portable health records. We will also support students who wish to investigate public health, such as population management of infectious disease epidemiology.
