Centre for Health Informatics

Advancing Health Informatics Research and Training for Precision Health.

The Centre for Health Informatics (CHI) is the newest University of Calgary research and innovation centre within the Cumming School of Medicine.

 

The Centre opened its doors in 2018 to advance and innovate health informatics for Precision Health through timely data access, data analytics such as visualization, linkage and coding, and leading research using secondary data for research trials, and clinical decision support. In Alberta's unique healthcare environment with a single Electronic Medical Records system, CHI brings together data assets to foster collaboration among investigators, support grant development, recruit faculty and students, develop cutting-edge analytics, and build capacity in data science and machine-learning.
