Kaiser-OHSU Informatics Course
The goal of the Kaiser-OHSU Informatics Course is to provide a detailed overview of clinical informatics to those who work at the interface of healthcare and information technology (IT). The course also aims to provide an entry point for those wishing further study (and/or career development) in the field. It provides a broad understanding of the field from the vantage point of those who implement, lead, and develop IT solutions for improving health, healthcare, public health, and biomedical research. It provides up-to-date details on current events in the field, including the “meaningful use” of electronic health records specified by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. The course also covers important emerging topics in the field, such as healthcare data analytics, patient engagement, and personalized/precision medicine.
The course is delivered online through online and in-person activities. The main instructor for the course is William Hersh, Professor and Chair, Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology, Oregon Health & Science University. Those completing the course who desire further education may optionally take the final exam for the course and enroll in the OHSU Graduate Program in Biomedical Informatics.
