We are currently seeking postdoctoral researchers interested in improving population health through the development, implementation and use of information technologies in health systems and public health agencies.
The Regenstrief Institute Center for Biomedical Informatics, in partnership with the Indiana University (IU) Fairbanks School of Public Health, is the host site for a newly funded U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) training program in Public & Population Health Informatics (PHI). This program uniquely prepares research scientists to advance the development, implementation and use of information systems used in clinical and public health organizations to measure and improve population health. The program officially begins July 1, 2017.
Under the guidance of a mentor, postdoctoral fellows will participate in the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of information systems that collect, manage and analyze data relevant to public health practice and population health outcomes. The fellows will design new studies and develop grant proposals as well as execute studies funded through extramural research grants. They will further work on multiple aspects of research projects to develop their skills as an independent researcher, including the production of scientific abstracts, manuscripts, and research proposals for national symposia and international scientific conferences related to their research. Fellows will further have the opportunity to collaborate with other Regenstrief, as well as IU Fairbanks School of Public Health, IU School of Medicine, and IU School of Informatics and Computing investigators.
About Regenstrief Institute, Inc.
Closely associated with the Indiana University School of Medicine, the Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County, Eskenazi Health, and IU Health, Regenstrief Institute was created as a medical research and development organization focused on improving quality of care, increasing efficiency of healthcare delivery, preventing medical errors, and enhancing patient safety.
The Center for Biomedical Informatics (CBMI) is focused on improving health care through informatics. We develop and apply health information technology solutions to generate knowledge about health, disease and treatment, help clinicians make optimal decisions, empower patients, and inform healthcare policy. To do so, we work on clinical applications, computer-based decision support, data mining, advanced analytics, healthcare information standards, and global health.
CBMI developed and advanced one of the nation’s first electronic medical record systems, one of the country’s first computerized provider order entry systems, and a health information exchange which has made Indiana the most health-wired state in the country, as well as a national model for health data exchange.
These applications and tools are widely recognized for their roles in improving quality of care, efficiency of healthcare delivery, reducing medical errors, and enhancing patient safety.
