The Duke Center for Health Informatics (DCHI) promotes research and education in a broad range of environments, including inpatient, ambulatory, primary care, secondary care, community, regional, and national settings.
In collaboration with the Duke School of Medicine, the Duke School of Nursing, the Pratt School of Engineering, the Fuqua School of Business, and Duke Health Technology Solutions, DCHI brings together departments and individuals in the fields of medicine, nursing, business, economics, biomedical engineering, computer science, public policy, and more to offer a truly multidisciplinary environment for understanding the effective and appropriate use of health information technology.
Our educational programs emphasize both theory and application, providing participants countless opportunities to define problems, design solutions, test prototypes, and evaluate results. Informatics-related research at Duke has fueled research and innovation in, and led to development of extraordinary tools, including:
- Duke Databank for Cardiovascular Disease
- Electronic Clinical Data Repository
- Duke HealthView Patient Portal
- MaestroCare Electronic Health Record
- Duke Enterprise Data Unified Content Explorer (DEDUCE)
- Duke Integrated Subject Cohort Enrollment Research Network (DISCERN)
- Duke Knowledge Repository (DKR)
