Leveraging data and information systems to care for families and communities

The Regenstrief Institute and the IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health (FSPH) at IUPUI have established a collaborative program in public and population health informatics. While the program officially started in 2018, investigators at Regenstrief and FSPH have been leading public health informatics research for more than a decade. Together, they have pioneered numerous technologies and methods that have continued to transform the field of public health informatics.

In addition to conducting and applying research, faculty with the program have made training in the growing field a priority. FSPH has a growing list of courses and degree programs focusing on public and population health informatics, including an MPH in public health informatics, a new certificate program, doctoral studies, and pre- and post- doctoral fellowships. Please visit the FSPH Public Health Informatics page to find more details about these educational opportunities.


Our mission is to improve public and population health through the

  • development and dissemination of effective informatics methods, systems, tools, and evidence;
  • translation of evidence into real-world solutions for providers, health systems, and public health organizations; and
  • increased knowledge and awareness of public health informatics through education and training.


The PH Informatics program envisions a world where informatics systems and tools are applied by providers, health systems, and public health organizations to improve the health and well-being of communities.


We are guided by the values of the Regenstrief Institute, the Center for Biomedical Informatics, and the following to complete our mission and vision.

  • Impact: We translate innovative, evidence-based informatics research and methods into real-world solutions for providers, health systems, and public health organizations.
  • Knowledge: We advance the science of informatics and knowledge of informatics methods as they are applied to public and population health contexts.
  • Mentorship: We develop and mentor the next generation of public health informatics leaders.
  • Equity: We measure the determinants and disparities in health and well-being, and we work with partners to end disparities and ensure health equity.
