The Center for Biomedical Informatics and Temple University's Department of Health Informatics Management, are offering a the Post-Baccalaureate Health Informatics Certificate.

Genome-scale clinical sequencing is being adopted more broadly in medical practice. The National Institutes of Health developed the Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research (CSER) program to guide implementation and dissemination of best practices for the integration of sequencing into clinical care. CBMi staff contributed to this article published online in Genetics in Medicine September 26, 2013.

Despite proven health benefits, human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination rates are among the lowest of all routine immunizations. No previous large-scale trial has compared the benefit of automated decision support directed at clinicians, families, or both in any context.

CBMi team discusses the user-centered development of an electronic medical record–based portal, “MyAsthma,” designed to facilitate shared decision making in pediatric asthma. The Center for Biomedical Informatics is featured in this article in the Journal of Ambulatory Care Management.

Recently during the development of the pediatric hearing impairment research tool, AudGenDB, we found ourselves challenged with a requirement to display anonymized medical image data inside the web browser.

June 26, 2012 - In an interview with O'Reilly's Andy Oram, Mike Italia describes how the CBMi informatics team derived structured data from electronic health record (EHR) forms developed by audiologists to support both research and clinical care.

He discusses the custom web interface that makes data available to researchers and the exciting potential of genomic sequencing to improve care. He also details tools used to collect and display data, many of which are open source.
