Biomedical Informatics and Biomedical Diagnostics
ASU’s College of Health Solutions recognizes the importance of information technology in health with our initiatives in biomedical informatics and biomedical diagnostics. Biomedical informatics studies effective uses of data, information and knowledge for problem solving and decision making while biomedical diagnostics is the study of procedures that provide information to aid the screening, detection, diagnosis and monitoring of disease. Each is intended to improve human health.
Biomedical informatics is increasingly essential to the advancement of health, connecting basic sciences with the practical application of clinical sciences. Skilled biomedical informatics professionals are able to analyze and translate large amounts of health data, including research, into meaningful solutions that improve health care delivery and patient outcomes.
Biomedical diagnostics is at the center of health care innovation today and is involved in more than 70 percent of all clinical decision-making. The College of Health Solutions offers an online Master of Science in biomedical diagnostics that leverages an international partnership for an innovative, global curriculum.
Our faculty, research and degree programs in biomedical informatics and biomedical diagnostics advance our commitment to improving health outcomes worldwide.
The College of Health Solutions offers a range of undergraduate and graduate degree programs in biomedical informatics and diagnostics that equip students to make a positive difference in health. Flexible options on ASU’s Tempe campus and online, global collaborations with international research universities and an accelerated master’s degree program are all designed to meet the needs of students and address the changing health care system.
