Health Informatics Research Group
The USA health informatics research group is currently focused on two major areas of research, education and outreach: risk assessment of healthcare systems and health informatics curriculum development. Our research group includes Full, Associate, and Assistant professors from both the school of CIS and the College of Nursing an industry partners.
The USA health informatics group is emerging as a center of research for risk assessment of healthcare data and systems and pedagogical innovations in health informatics curriculum and education. We are seeking colleagues with mutual interests to pursue publication and grant opportunities in our identified research themes or closely related areas.
