Students in I407/I507 Introduction to Health Informatics will be able to describe the scope of how technology can improve health and well being. Students will be able to discuss past, ongoing, and emerging research in health informatics, with an emphasis on research being performed at Indiana University. They will describe key challenges for different types of health technologies and demonstrate how technology designs use health theories. Throughout the semester, students will critique how social and political factors impact design and adoption of technology for health.
Finally, they will create digital media about health technologies (e.g. articles, videos, and infographics).
