Regenstrief Institute, Inc. (RI) and the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM), are seeking an innovative individual to serve as Director of Center for Biomedical Informatics at Regenstrief Institute. The Director provides strategic vision, intellectual and academic leadership, and administrative oversight to the Center, and promotes its mission to improve the delivery and outcomes of health care through research in innovative advances in health services. Along with a university faculty appointment, the Director of this Center reports to the President/CEO of Regenstrief Institute.
The Center for Biomedical Informatics (CBMI) is focused on improving health care through informatics. We develop and apply health information technology solutions to generate knowledge about health, disease and treatment, help clinicians make optimal decisions, empower patients, and inform healthcare policy. To do so, we work on clinical applications, computer-based decision support, data mining, advanced analytics, healthcare information standards, and global health. CBMI developed and advanced one of the nation's first electronic medical record systems, one of the country's first computerized provider order entry systems, and a health information exchange which has made Indiana the most health-wired state in the country, as well as a national model for health data exchange. These applications and tools are widely recognized for their roles in improving quality of care, efficiency of healthcare delivery, reducing medical errors, and enhancing patient safety.
Qualified candidates from any medicine, informatics or health service specialty are encouraged to apply. A successful candidate would have sufficiently comprehensive knowledge of the domains listed above, to mobilize the future efforts of the Center's multidisciplinary, collaborative community, and advance interdisciplinary research partnerships across the Institute and the life sciences community within Indiana, including institutions such as:
Indiana University (Schools of Public Health, Medicine, Nursing, Liberal Arts, Business, Law, and others)
Purdue University (School of Communication, Colleges of Pharmacy, Engineering, and Liberal Arts, and others)
