Translational Data Analytics
Public health data management and synthesis is the systematic application of various methods from the fields of data analytics, statistics, information science, computer science, and technology to advance understanding in public health and health system practice, research, and education. With increasing use of and modernization of information systems, health information technology is becoming more central to public health and healthcare. Public health practitioners must be able to gather and synthesize relevant information effectively in order to improve health outcomes. Such faculty may also be integral to major multicenter studies and trials that require data management, synthesis and coordination.
At Ohio State, we are building data analytics and public health informatics capacities to collect, evaluate, and disseminate health information. We aim to align information infrastructure to support access to big data. A foundation in data analytics will allow the College of Public Health to have a greater impact, both locally and globally, and to respond to health threats more efficiently.
In order to solve current public health challenges, we seek applicants who will build campus-wide collaborations and initiate innovative research projects in applied public health data management.
