This interdisciplinary academic division brings together a wide range of resources and expertise in biomedical information management, communication, and technology. Through the educational, research, and service activities of its components, the Division of Health Sciences Informatics seeks to advance the development and use of electronic and other information resources for decision-making, research, health care delivery, and individual academic growth and to increase the awareness of these resources among the Johns Hopkins medical community.
Basic research and development involving the application of informatics to a variety of medical and basic science disciplines is also being carried out by individual members of the division, and the results of these efforts are being applied to research and educational initiatives throughout the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. Current research areas include: data science, medical informatics, genome informatics, information management, consumer health informatics, computer-based documentation systems for point of care, informatics and evidence-based medicine, biomedical editing and communication, and electronic publishing.
