Duke Medicine to Train Healthcare Professionals in Health Informatics
Date:12/3/2009

DURHAM, N.C., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to the increasingly critical role of healthcare information technologies in the evolving healthcare delivery system, Duke Medicine has created the Duke Center for Health Informatics (DCHI) to provide a campus focus for health informatics. DCHI will oversee an innovative interdisciplinary approach to education that will produce a new generation of physicians, nurses and healthcare administrators with an expertise in the use of informatics to improve human health.

The DCHI is a collaboration among the nationally recognized Duke University Schools of Medicine and Nursing, and the Fuqua School of Business, and will reflect a synergy resulting from the various areas of informatics excellence across the three schools.

W. Ed Hammond, Ph.D., one of the world's pioneers in healthcare information technology, has been named the director of the DCHI.

"There is little question that succeeding following healthcare reform will require healthcare professionals and executives to have an understanding of health informatics and how informatics can be applied using specific tools and capabilities," said Victor J. Dzau, MD, chancellor for health affairs at Duke and CEO, Duke University Health System. "I believe the DCHI will play a significant role in advancing the pragmatic application of informatics in many healthcare settings."

DCHI will have a strong focus on the outcome of improving human health, a tight integration between health system operations and research programs, and a distinctly interdisciplinary curriculum and training environment. The program will, in all of its components, emphasize the use of information and information systems to improve human health.

Educational offerings are being planned and reviewed across the campus to advance this new center's academic mission.
