" This course is a blueprint for budding doctors in their quest for their elixir of life"

The best ( for me seminal) part of the course was distinction between different field of informatics with examples. Hitherto, everyone seems to be confused with Public Health informatics, Population Health Informatics, Population Health Management. This course has glued the different pieces into a perfectly fitting Jigsaw puzzle.

The best Informatics related course I have seen encompassing the whole breadth of Healthcare Transformation through Health IT.

Fantastic basic overview course with important content for those in the healthcare arena!

This was a very informative course. It help me realize that there is still a lot of work that needs to be done to improve interoperability between EHRs as well as improving communication with the patients and families as well as communication between providers. This will most certainly help me in the work that I'm involved in right now which is family centered care. We already invite the parents to participate in morning rounds with all the team members. The lecture about trust was loaded with helpful information. Great work!!

This is an interesting clinical case study based course for the Clinician.
