CPSC 5250 - Medical Informatics


(3) Credit Hours

Informatics and big data promise an understanding of health, disease, and treatment on a scale never imagined before. This understanding can transform healthcare from reactive and hospital-centered to preventive, evidence-based, person-centered and focused on well-being rather than disease. This course introduces the conceptual framework for handling the collection, storage, and optimal use of health data. It covers basic principles of topics such as sensor technology, machining learning techniques, decision support systems, modeling, database, and legal and ethical issues. Prerequisite: CPSC 5210 or department head approval. Differential course fee will be assessed.
