This course studies the motivations, evolution, state-of-the-art, current limitations, and future research to improve health quality and outcomes. Methods and techniques to define, measure, improve, and document health quality are presented, including meaningful use reporting skills. Several high-stake types of systems are analyzed. Students are led through case studies to critically appraise actual health informatics initiatives at all levels from the computer system level to the patient outcome level and from the local scope to the national and global scopes, with an emphasis on patient and population health outcomes.
