Doctor collaborating with technology

The University of Chicago Master of Science in Biomedical Informatics will be hosting the lecture "Using Data and Technology to Enhance Collaborative Practices in the Outpatient Setting". This is an examination of primary care teams and the methods through which they provide care. Using human computer interaction techniques and large datasets, this work presents an analysis of the methods through which primary care teams coordinate to provide care in relation to meeting Patient Centered Medical Home model standards as well as management of test results. We will discuss evidence-based recommendations to enhance coordinated and integrative care.

You'll also meet our program director, Suzanne Cox, as well as MScBMI students and instructors. Our program works closely with academic and industry partners throughout Chicago, and beyond, to improve healthcare with thoughtful, effective applications of technology.
