Welcome to Biomedical Informatics

Researcher at Cincinnati Children’s.

We are the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, known on social media as CincyInformatix. We represent one of the nation's oldest medical colleges and a top pediatric hospital/research institution. Our researchers use computational methods to solve pressing health problems in bioinformatics, clinical informatics and genomics.

Overview

Biomedical informatics 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. The field is motivated by efforts to improve human health. 

Biomedical informatics has become an integral component of both clinical and translational research and the healthcare infrastructure, increasing the demand for researchers and health professionals trained in the field.

As biomedical research continues its transition to a data-driven discipline, academic biomedical institutions must embrace transformative changes in how research is conducted. 

The University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center are at the forefront of these trends. In 2014, they joined forces to create a new, cross-institutional Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMi). 

The department is the academic home for biomedical and health-associated informatics research. DBMi’s objectives include:

  • Enabling the UC academic healthcare enterprise to make better use of biomedical data and technology for new discoveries, innovative science, and improved healthcare.
  • Developing and implementing highly transformational approaches for more completely understanding and positively impacting disease.
  • Facilitating collaborations and data sharing among participating institutions in Cincinnati and worldwide.
  • Educating the next generation of biomedical data scientists.

 

UC’s Center for Health Informatics is now part of this new domain.
