In this course, technical and non-technical students can gain basic proficiency in health informatics. Health informatics is the application of computing to healthcare delivery, public health, and community-based clinical research.
The overall course paradigm is the Institute of Medicine's vision of a "Learning Health System" that uses data from actual patient care to gain new knowledge and feeds that knowledge back as care is delivered to achieve a safer, higher quality, and more cost effective health delivery system.
