Health Informatics

Abstract representation of big data

The Division of Health Informatics pursues research, education, and service in the application of information science and technology to improve human health, healthcare quality, and the value of healthcare. Division faculty have expertise in the use and effects of information technology in healthcare, such as adoption, usability, fit, utility, generalizability, scalability or sustainability, and in the intelligent use of data to inform policy and decision making, such as applications of data mining, machine learning or analytics. Division faculty and staff participate in multi-disciplinary, collaborative projects with other divisions, departments and partner organizations, including faculty, staff and students at the Medical College in NYC and Qatar, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Cornell Tech and Cornell University in Ithaca.
