This week I had the opportunity to kick off our OHSU Biomedical Informatics Conference Series that takes place on Thursdays at 11:30 am. I presented an overview of the HITECH program, OHSU's role in it, and how it impacts not only clinical informatics, but other areas of informatics as well, such as bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, public health informatics, and consumer health informatics. A video of the talk and PDF of my slides (with references) are available.
We also launched our new department web site this week. All of our old URLs still work, including those to the site and to information about our ONC scholarship funding.
