Target Audience and Needs

Physician informaticists, nurse informaticists, data analysts, data programmers, developers of health information technology, informatics technicians, and healthcare practitioners and trainees need to receive regular updates on the role of informatics in healthcare and recent advances in the field.  The series aims to review current methods for using large sets of healthcare data to solve clinical problems and to support quality patient care.  The series also aims to demonstrate how to integrate findings across health systems, synthesize proposed plans for quality improvements, and use such tools as geomapping to better delineate health problems within communities.

Educational Methods

Educational methods will include lectures.


At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:

  • Identify healthcare problems that can be addressed by using large data sets.
  • Use various informatics tools to solve the healthcare problems identified.
  • Design informatics systems that support quality in clinical care.
  • Integrate data analytical findings into patient care improvement plans.
  • Delineate gaps in healthcare using informatics tools such as geomapping.


Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
