IUPUI Center for Cancer Population Analytics and Patient-Centered Informatics

Our Mission

We develop team science that combines innovative health information technologies with rigorous health services research methods in order to create knowledge that will have an impact upon the health and health care of patients and populations with cancer in the state of Indiana and the U.S.

Our Goals

We have two primary goals:

  1. Build collaborative, multidisciplinary scientific teams to create national leaders in the state of Indiana in the fields of cancer health services research and informatics
  2. Perform top-tier national cancer health services research and “big data” analytics to improve the quality, efficiency, coordination, and outcomes of cancer care

Core Activities

In the course of our shared work, we will look for best practices both locally and nationally and pursue highly innovative projects.  To build our research portfolio, we will have two main cores of activity:

  1. Cancer Population Analytics Core (Regenstrief Institute, School of Medicine)
  2. Cancer Patient-Centered Informatics Core (School of Informatics and Computing)
