With large data comes complexity—informatics is the art and science to transform that information into meaningful knowledge.
For Umberto Tachinardi, MD, MSc, Associate Dean for Biomedical Informatics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, informatics is critical to translational medicine, as Chief Research Information Officer, he develops and supports technologies used to generate new scientific and clinical insights. He is also interested in the ethical, logistical and technical aspects involved in incorporating genetic data into Electronic Health Records.
Umberto’s work shows the importance of informatics to realize the delivery of personalized medicine.
Why informatics? So, we can leverage data to treat people individually.
