The fields of healthcare and life sciences are experiencing a fundamental shift toward transdisciplinary, integrative and data-intensive approaches to research. These developments, coupled with the use of information technology platforms, are helping transform healthcare, achieving greater value alongside improved outcomes and safety. The complex data, information and knowledge needs associated with these changes requires a comprehensive approach to biomedical informatics research, education and practice.
Washington University (WU) has created the Institute for Informatics (I2) to provide an academic and professional home for informatics science and practice. I2 spans the School of Medicine (SOM) as well as partnerships with the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the Institute for Public Health, the Brown School, the Olin School of Business, the Health Systems Innovation Lab and Center for Clinical Excellence at BJC HealthCare, and the Cortex Innovation Community.
