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

ith an emphasis on applied health informatics is a unique vision, and one that will help meet the national demand for trained informaticists to guide the design, implementation and evaluation of health IT for the betterment of human health," said Asif Ahmad, vice president, diagnostic services, Duke University Health System, and chief information officer for DUHS and Duke University Medical Center. Students at Duke will be able to use the Duke Health Technologies & Systems as a 'living lab' in which to learn how to deploy and analyze these tools and technologies."

The DCHI will be administratively housed in the Duke Translational Medicine Institute led by Rob Califf, MD, vice chancellor for clinical research and director of the Duke Translational Medicine Institute.

"The interdisciplinary nature of the Center and strong connection with the Translational Medicine Institute and the health system is a distinct statement of our commitment to leveraging health informatics to improve human health," said Califf.

Over the past forty years, DCHI's Hammond has held virtually every leadership position of significance in the world of health information technologies, and is widely recognized as having made seminal contributions to the field. He is a past president of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) and the American College of Medical Informatics. He served as a member of the Institute of Medicine Committee on Patient Safety Data Standards, served on several National Institutes of Health review committees, and has published over 300 technical articles.

The DCHI will bring together more than 50 Duke faculty and its initiation will be supported by a grant from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
