Core Summary:

The Boston Children's Hospital Computational Health Informatics Program (CHIP) is a multidisciplinary applied research and education program. Informatics has become a major theme and methodology for biomedical science, health care delivery, and public health. Biomedical informatics involves modeling and understanding the cognitive, information processing and communication tasks of biomedical science, medical practice, education and research. The field is inherently interdisciplinary, drawing on traditional biomedical disciplines, the science and technology of computing, data science, biostatistics, epidemiology, decision sciences, population health, omics, implementation science, and health care policy and management. Our faculty are trained in medicine, data scientice, computer science, mathematics and epidemiology.
