Emergency Medicine/Public Health Informatics Research

Faculty member: Matthew Scholer, MD, PhD

Project Description: Members of the Carolina Center for Health Informatics within the UNC Department of Emergency Medicine work with large datasets to address research topics in the areas of Emergency Medicine and Public Health Informatics. Projects focus on disease surveillance and population based emergency medicine research using de-identified statewide Emergency Department data. We provide analytical support, web access and data storage for the North Carolina Disease Event Tracking and Epidemiologic Collection Tool (NC DETECT, www.ncdetect.org). Educational activities include CCHI team meetings and weekly Emergency Medicine research meetings with frequent extramural speakers.
