The Health Informatics Institute (HII) at UGA is a hub for interdisciplinary interactions among faculty with active research programs who share an interest in using health informatics techniques and capabilities to investigate and improve health care and population health outcomes while learning, creating and applying new informatics methods and tools.


This Institute engages with the wider community to gain pragmatic insight about applying health informatics tools and capabilities to understand and address real-world problems. The HII has 3 areas of emphasis, which are:

  • Health Care / Medical Informatics
  • Public Health Informatics
  • Health Systems Modeling
Education and Training

HII is working to develop state-of-the-science courses and mentoring opportunities to prepare the next generation of innovators in health informatics to access an expanding range of health related information, analyze it effectively, and use the outcomes to take appropriate actions that meet health care and population health objectives.
