Introduction: Health informatics is the interdisciplinary study of the design, development, adoption, and application of IT-based innovations in healthcare services delivery, management, and planning (U.S. National Library of Medicine).
Mission: The ND INBRE Health Informatics Support Service provides clinical and health professional researchers consultative advice for studies modeling and recording real-world clinical concepts and events into computable data. The service strives to match faculty needs with individual experienced in the various fields of health informatics. This data is used to derive actionable information, based on expertise in medicine, information science, information technology, and the scholarly study of issues that impact upon the productive use of information systems by clinical personnel. The ND INBRE Health Informatics support service maintains a strong collaborative relationship with the Master of Public Health Program at UND.
Fee For Service
Consultation: The ND INBRE will support from internal resources the limited hours of consultation costs that are necessary for investigators to propose high quality research involving health informatics. This consultative services is aimed at three core areas: 1. The identification of faculty most qualified to provide consultation for the proposed project area; 2. The discussion of, and examination of, protocols prior to submission to commercial and other outside agencies for the generation of data that will require subsequent cost and time extensive analysis; and, 3. The discussion and examination of protocols involving health informatics proposed in investigator-initiated intramural and extramural grants and contracts prior to submission to the funding agency.
Collaboration: The faculty associated with Health Informatics are available for direct effort on extramural research grants as a Multiple Principal Investigator. Investigators are welcome to discuss such opportunities for collaboration.
