Welcome to the UGA Health Informatics Institute

The Health Informatics Institute (HII) is pioneering the development of powerful new tools at the intersection of information science, computer science, health care, human population health research, and the application of these tools in health-related contexts. Health informatics is a dynamically evolving discipline and our researchers are constantly using health informatics tools to analyze a wide variety of health care data in an effort to understand and improve health care outcomes. The work of the HII seeks to strengthen traditional public health functions like prevention, surveillance, and intervention.
