UTHealth receives $15 million for health information technology research
Date:4/7/2010

HOUSTON - (April 7, 2010) An elderly woman suspected of having a stroke arrives confused at the emergency room. The physician uses the basic information she is able to provide to access the critical medical history that will help him treat her. In simplest terms, that's the promise of health information technology.

To move toward that future, biomedical and health informatics researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) have received a $15 million stimulus grant to establish the National Center for Cognitive Informatics and Decision Making in Healthcare (NCCD) at UTHealth. At the center, faculty will conduct breakthrough research to advance the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology.

"It must be easy to use and easy to learn. This grant will give us the opportunity to turn our ideas into practice and ultimately into improved patient care."

The UTHealth School of Health Information Sciences was awarded the money through the Strategic Health IT Advanced Research Projects (SHARP) Program, which seeks to support improvements in the quality, safety and efficiency of health care through advanced information technology.

The award was one of four presented by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to address key barriers to health information technology.

"Our school was an early visionary in understanding that technology must be adapted to the needs of users based on how they think, how they learn and how they make decisions, which is cognitive informatics," Smith said. "Since the inception of the school, we have been working to bring together the world
