The UF CTSI provides free informatics consulting to all faculty, staff and students of the University of Florida and it’s affiliated health care partners.
What is informatics? Informatics is the science of information representation and processing. Informaticists study knowledge representation and management and are often involved in the design and construction of information systems. Biomedical informaticians focus on informatics problems related to health care and health care research. For more information about biomedical informatics as an academic discipline at UF, please see www.idp.med.ufl.edu/.
If you are writing a grant, or considering work in quality assurance, the relation of Epic to research, the improvement of clinical care through information technology, or just have questions about the direction the academic health center is taking in its information infrastructure in support of research and care, please feel free to set up an appointment to speak with one of the faculty involved with our informatics activities.
Current projects include new consent processes for clinical care to allow for use of data in research, the construction of a large scale integrated data repository for clinical and research data, a new portal for the CTSI, and a study registry for all clinical studies at UF. To learn more about these and other projects of the CTSI, please see Research Initiatives for more information.
