A Health Informatics Short Course Presented by the Center for Quantitative Medicine and Division of Biomedical Informatics
An intensive one day short course taught by a multidisciplinary team of physician-educators and informatics leaders uses a patient case approach to introduce the structure and function of electronic health records (EHR) systems and illustrates these key health informatics concepts:
- Data acquisition, storage, and retrieval,
- electronic health information exchange (HIE),
- clinical decision support, and
- reporting EHR data for quality improvement, meaningful use, performance and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). An ONC certified complete EHR system will be shown to demonstrate these important topics.
