Informatics brings together large data sets, which provides enormous opportunities to improve people’s health.

For Michael F. Chiang, MD, MA, professor of Ophthalmology and Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology at OHSU, informatics allows him to gather large data sets in ophthalmology through patients’ electronic health records to be a part of the IRIS Registry Project.

Through the IRIS Registry Project, Michael’s work shows the importance of informatics to improve the delivery of eye care and improve quality of care for those with eye disease.

Why Informatics? So, we can all see the world clearly.
