New Course Supplement 2016

COSC 89.17 Health Informatics

Our health is everywhere. It is affected by how, where and who we live, work and play with (i.e., biological, behavioral, social and environmental factors). The explosion of digitization of data, captured both outside 'in the wild' and within the healthcare delivery system, allows us to understand and address the many factors affecting the complexity of our health. Today, health and healthcare data is continuously being generated. Deriving information and knowledge to improve and maintain health requires health informatics. Computer science plays an active role as a profession and within its research efforts in informing and developing all aspects of health informatics: data capture, data storage and data analytics. The goal of this course is two fold: first, to learn about the latest topics in health informatics and second, to design & develop a health informatics project.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
