Biomedical Informatics (DBMI)
DBMI designs, implements, and evaluates informatics algorithms and systems that serve biomedical researchers, other healthcare providers, and public health professionals.About Us
DBMI was founded in the summer of 2009; since then, it has been a Division within the Department of Medicine in the School of Medicine and, in 2015, it also became a Department of UC San Diego Health -- having the tri-partite mission of research, training, and service/collaboration.
All of Us Research Program
The mission is simple. We want to speed up health research breakthroughs. To do this, we're asking one million people to share information about their health, habits, and what it's like where they live. By looking for patterns in this information, researchers may learn more about what affects people's health.
CA COVID Notify
CA COVID Notify is a new voluntary pilot program that uses Apple and Google smartphone technology to help rapidly control COVID-19 outbreaks.
COVID-19 Data Discovery from Clinical Records
COVID-19 Data Discovery from Clinical Records is your resource for questions and answers about COVID-19, funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation! We use electronic health record (EHR) data from 12 leading medical centers to answer simple and complex clinical questions related to COVID-19.
