Center for Health Informatics


Welcome to the Center for Health Informatics

The UC Center for Health Informatics (CHI) is the operational core for the Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) and is the academic home for health informatics at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.

The CHI works closely with the Center for Clinical & Translational Science & Training (CCTST), Institutional Review Board (IRB), Office of Research, UC data governance, Information Security and Privacy Officers as well as countless academic partners. Established in 2006, CHI applies informatics methods, techniques and resources to apply data science to clinical research. Quite simply, we turn data into information.

Growth in this area has been extensive in recent years, facilitated by significant infrastructure developments in bioinformatics, clinical informatics, as well as the addition of key faculty with expertise in various biomedical informatics domains.

The center is affiliated with other departments, hospitals and healthcare organizations around campus and the region, each of which provide real-world settings where our informatics innovations and research efforts have their ultimate impacts on biomedical science and clinical practice.

While the center's primary focus is on the sub-domains of health informatics concerned with clinical care, clinical research and public health, our faculty also collaborate closely with departments and divisions around UC and partner institutions that focus on other sub-domains biomedical and health informatics such as bioinformatics, computational biology and engineering.
