Biomedical Informatics is a complex field, as demonstrated by this Wordle, generated from the papers accepted at the 2013 Annual Symposium of the American Medical Informatics Association.
Portable, hand-held computing is essential for busy clinicians. Biomedical informatics researchers and practitioners have been and continue to be at the forefront of developing, deploying, and evaluating this technology in every healthcare environment.
Interdisciplinary Nature of Biomedical Informatics
IBI hosts practical workshops in topics like Python and R.
A genetic network
Just as the introduction of the stethoscope revolutionized patient care, so does the computer.
The Mission of the Institute for Biomedical Informatics
The Institute for Biomedical Informatics strives to provide an interdisciplinary home for basic science and clinical faculty and students with a research or applied interest in biomedical informatics.
Biomedical informatics (BMI) is the interdisciplinary field that studies and pursues the effective uses of biomedical data, information, and knowledge for scientific inquiry, problem solving and decision making, motivated by efforts to improve human health.
