The OSU CCTS Biomedical Informatics Core (BMIC) implements, manages and facilitates access to technology platforms, tools and expertise that support and enable high impact discovery science.
Biomedical Informatics (BMI) is "the field that is concerned with the optimal use of information, often aided by the use of technology and people, to improve individual health, health care, public health, and biomedical research."
The goal of BMIC is to implement, manage and facilitate access to an “ecosystem” of technology platforms, tools and expertise that support and enable high impact discovery science. As such, the BMIC has five specific aims:
- To provide faculty, staff, and trainees with access to a comprehensive spectrum of data collection, management, integration, exchange, reuse, and analytics tools and expertise;
- To identify and implement strategic enhancements to clinical information systems so as to realize the vision of a learning healthcare system, wherein every patient encounter provides an ability to generate data, information and knowledge;
- To establish an maintain a comprehensive and systematic research data security framework consisting of an integrative "fabric" of people, policies, and technologies;
- To design, deliver, manage, and optimize a suite of software tools that support 'lifecycle' management of clinical and translational science resource and consultative needs, anchored upon a research-provider metaphor; and
- To serve in an organizational leadership role relative to the ongoing indentification and satisfaction of clinical and translational science-relevant information needs through the appropriate selection, implementation, and management of enterprise-wide information techonology platforms.
