Standards in Biomedical Informatics
Academic Noncredit

This online introductory course will focus on vocabularies and standards commonly used in clinical and public health systems, particularly those required for information exchange and meaningful use of data. Students will be directed to the current literature and resources to gain knowledge about clinical information models and standard terminologies. Students will view online lectures and perform interactive modules that allow students to get hands on experience with selecting vocabulary, mapping concepts to standard vocabularies, creating and testing standardized messages, and creating information models. Students will learn to browse LOINC and SNOMED CT and describe the benefits of using data and messaging standards and their role for the secondary use of data for quality improvement, public health reporting, decision support and research.

This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.

Online book and material fees may be added up until the first week of class. Students may opt out during the first two weeks of class. For more information, visit the Campus Store Inclusive Access Program's webpage. If you opt out, you will be responsible for obtaining the course materials yourself for the course.
