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 is the designated Honest Broker for UC Health to access data for research. The CHI maintains a close relationship with the Institutional Review Board and the Office of Research to ensure data are properly accessed, delivered and logged based on
federal and university compliance requirements.
The CHI is a service core partially funded by the College of Medicine, Biomedical Informatics and the Center for Clinical & Translational Science and Training (CCTST) to provide services for Departments in the COM.
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.
