Environmental Health Informatics



This research is performed within the Center of Excellence for Exposure Health Informatics (CEEHI). CEEHI is a multi-disciplinary center co-led by Nursing Informatics and Biomedical Informatics faculty and collaborators. This diverse faculty background provides unique research experiences to students of the most diverse academic background. The Center of Excellence for Exposure Health Informatics (CEEHI) was formally established by the University of Utah in September 2019. We pronounce it “See High”, a not so subtle reference to being able to see our lovely mountains. The Exposure Health Informatics Ecosystem, originally developed as the Utah PRISMS Informatics Ecosystem, was the result of a unique collaboration and high levels of synergy between interdisciplinary investigators and it is the centerpiece infrastructure of CEEHI. The CEEHI allows faculty to continue collaborations investigating the effects of the environment on health, and extend collaboration to additional investigators and students, serving as the focal point for an expanding portfolio of research and training activities. Through these collaborative efforts, the Center continues the investigation and development of state-of-the-art informatics methods for exposure/environmental health research. Members meet monthly to present research findings and discuss new research directions.
