Discovery Science and Health Informatics
College of Health and Human Services
The mission of the Center for Discovery Science and Health Informatics is to research computational methods to improve healthcare cost, quality, safety and effectiveness. Specifically, it conducts basic and applied research on developing computational theories, analytic methods, and software applications that support decision making and discovery of knowledge from healthcare data. This includes data mining, artificial intelligence and other knowledge discovery methods and tools tailored towards the meaningful use of health data, health services research, evidenced based practice, and decision support for a variety of health system stakeholders and end-users (clinicians, managers, researchers, policy makers, and consumers) from all sectors of the health system. To achieve this objective, the center focuses on research and services in healthcare informatics:
Faculty and students from a variety of academic units at George Mason University work with the Center to conduct interdisciplinary research in health informatics and provide service learning and research mentorship for students across campus.
