Biomedical informatics expertise is key to all types of translational research, including integration and sharing of large and/or confidential data sets from disparate systems and investigators, and collaborating over distance, as is often required to address rural health disparities. Biomedical informatics expertise is embedded in almost all of UNMC‘s colleges, departments, and institutes, and includes active collaborators in the University of Nebraska-Omaha College of Information Science and Technology, which led to the development of a joint biomedical informatics graduate program.
