The Space

The Centre for Health Informatics aims to be a space that fosters collaboration between researchers to advance health informatics. With Alberta Health Services in-house data analysts and data access, data is able to be accessed in a timely manner. Data access is an important piece of health research and is at the beginning of the important transformations the data undergoes in health informatics that lead to monumental impacts in the health system. The space houses researchers of varying disciplines in health research to support inter-disciplinary collaboration and exchange of expertise. 

 

The Centre for Health Informatics is a space that is designed to form relationships, both personal and professional, to foster collaboration. Our staff consists of many individuals from varying disciplines like biostatistics, epidemiology, computer engineering, physics, statistics, health economics, and nursing. By providing a space for conversation and socialization, the Centre for Health Informatics fosters inter-disciplinary collaborations for cutting-edge new projects. The space also allows the Centre to host the Certificate in Health Data Science Analytics and Biostatistics students during their semester, visiting scholars, working group meetings, summer students, graduate students, PhD students, Post-doctoral fellows, faculty, analysts, administrative staff, and other researchers as well as seminars and workshops.
