The Duke Center for Health Informatics and Rachel Richesson, an associate professor in the Duke School of Nursing and noted informaticist, will be teaching an online course, Data Standards for Learning Health Systems, for 10 weeks, starting on January 23, 2017.
The course is part of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) 10×10 Virtual Courses program. AMIA’s goal is to train 10,000 health care professionals in applied health and medical informatics within 10 years. A key part of this program is offering curricular content from existing informatics training programs through online, virtual classes.
The course will explore the concept of learning health systems and closely examine the specific data standards requied to support the data exchange and re-use in this context. Students will have an opportunity to define a clinical question and the various standards that can support the application and evaluation of evidence in a health care setting.
