The Brown Center for Biomedical Informatics (BCBI) was founded in July 2015 to lead the development and application of informatics approaches in biomedicine and health care. The three-fold mission of BCBI is to: (1) Innovate how electronic biomedical and health data are used, (2) Implement solutions for improving biomedical research and healthcare delivery, and (3) Inspire the next generation of biomedical researchers and clinicians in partnership with collaborators in existing areas of excellence at Brown, its hospital affiliates, and statewide healthcare organizations.
