Biomedical Informatics (BMI) is the scientific field that is concerned with the optimal use of information, often aided by the use of technology and people (researchers, practitioners, users, etc.), to improve individual health, health care, public health, and biomedical research.
The CCTS Research Informatics Services Core provides investigators, trainees and research staff at The Ohio State University (OSU) and Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH) with access to state-of-the-art biomedical informatics expertise, technologies and software platforms. Our team leverages the skills and tools that exist within OSU’s Department of BMI, OSUMC’s Information Technology Department (OSUMC-IT), and the Ohio Super Computer Center (OSC), in order to advance the state of clinical and translational science.
The program supports individual investigators by:
- Providing consulting services to investigators and research staff in order to assist them in planning for and identifying informatics support and services.
- Facilitating access to clinical/phenotypic data contained in the OSUMC Information Warehouse.
- Facilitating access to specialized methodological expertise pertaining to the management and analysis of complex and multi-dimensional data sets
- Enabling access to collaborative Web tools intended to support team-science activities.
- Delivery and support of a variety of research data management systems
