Clinical Informatics

Dedicated to improving the quality and safety of clinical care throughout the region, our faculty conduct research into electronic health records (EHR), clinical data warehousing, clinical research informatics and clinical decision support (CDS).

Research

Our division has specialized expertise in the purpose, scope, structure and use of EHR systems, their value and effectiveness and current standards for their development.

Our capabilities include conducting comparative, critical, hands-on analsyes and tests of these systems.

We’re also engaged in the science of human health care decisions. This includes evaluating CDS methods for patient populations, conducting critical comparative analyses and tests of representative CDS applications, and building CDS applications.

Education and Training

We teach our clinical informatics fellows as well as third- and fourth-year medical students enrolled in our elective course on the basic principles of clinical informatics.
