The University of Kansas Center for Health Informatics is offering the course, Introduction to Health Informatics, as part of the AMIA 10x10 Program.
This web-based course provides a broad survey of health informatics focused on five themes: health informatics foundations; clinical decision support; human/organizational factors; public health informatics and current issues in health informatics including best practices. Participants will develop and demonstrate a practical, innovative small-group information technology (IT) project. This project will be presented in a web conference scheduled at the end of the course. You also will be invited to present your team project at a face-to-face meeting to be held in Fall 2013 in conjunction with the AMIA Fall conference. Attendance at the AMIA Fall Symposium is encouraged but not required.
