The once simple medical record has evolved into a powerful digital tool that can unlock the secrets to better patient outcomes and enhanced population health. At UTHealth Houston School of Biomedical Informatics (SBMI), our experts harness this wealth of information to find new uses for existing medications, predict disease, and innovate in countless other ways to improve health.
Each day, our faculty focus on collecting, processing, and converting data—from information about molecules to medical records from entire populations—into solutions for common and complex health problems.
As the only academic program of biomedical informatics in Texas, we offer a vibrant learning environment to help today’s students become the informatics leaders of tomorrow.
