Washington University has created the Institute for Informatics (I2) to provide an academic and professional home for informatics science and practice.
Informatics is the use of data-centric approaches to solve complex problems. Informatics offers a way to harness and manage big data, leading to a number of benefits including an accelerated rate of scientific discovery, improved clinical decision making and the ability to promote healthy behaviors at a population level. The Institute for Informatics uses this data to transform research, education and patient care.
Areas of Focus
- Translational bioinformatics
- Learning healthcare systems
