About Us


The CIA establishes the infrastructure to capture, aggregate, manage, share, and analyze data to create clinical knowledge, improve population health, and connect research, education and healthcare.


The center enables collaborative use of information, enhances the existing centralized enterprise data warehouse (EDW) to promote collaboration among investigators, increases analytic capabilities, and manages data in a variety of formats and across platforms. The CIA's Honest Broker process provides de-identified data sets, limited data sets, and data sets containing protected health information (PHI) with proper approval and authorizations under the guidance of the EDW Governance Committee.

Health care

The center enhances care at UMMC by transforming clinical and administrative data that impacts care delivery. The CIA creates enterprise, departmental and project specific data visualization applications and conducts analytics that supports the clinical and operational missions of the healthcare enterprise.


The center enhances best practices in health care education by developing processes/applications for academic affairs and all six schools to achieve various accreditation needs.
