Informatics within the Department of Emergency Medicine is interdisciplinary, drawing on and contributing to other component fields, including computer science, decision science, implementation science, information science, management science, cognitive science, and organizational theory. Informatics researchers develop, introduce, and evaluate new biomedically motivated methods in areas as diverse as data mining, natural language or text processing, cognitive science, human-computer interaction, decision support, databases, and algorithms for analyzing large amounts of data generated in medicine, public health, clinical research, and genomics/proteomics.
