Welcome to the OHSU Clinfowiki

The OHSU Clinical Informatics Wiki (aka ClinfoWiki) is the implementation of a wiki website devoted to topics in Biomedical Informatics.

The Department of Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology (DMICE) is one of 27 academic departments in the School of Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU). The mission of DMICE is to provide leadership, discovery and dissemination of knowledge in clinical informatics, clinical epidemiology, and bioinformatics / computation biology. This mission is fulfilled through programs of research, education, and service. DMICE programs are recognized internationally for their accomplishment and innovation. The OHSU Biomedical Informatics program is one of the largest of its kind in the world.

Clinfowiki is edited by Vishnu Mohan, M.D., M.B.I., and was created in 2005 by Dean F. Sittig, Ph.D..

The site can be browsed by anyone. To begin a new article, or edit an existing article, you must first create an account and login to the ClinfoWiki. The easiest way to create a new page is to edit an existing page where you want your article to link from, and then place your page's name within double square brackets, like so: [[Your page name here]] If you then save the page and click on that link, you will be taken to a screen with a box where you can begin to write your content.

We are currently working on 1,581 articles, and we need your help to complete this study of Informatics. See Special:Statistics for more complete information on the site.

The Clinfowiki has recently been reorganized into the 20 categories below. When adding (or editing) content, please try to ensure the content traces back to one of these categories.


Electronic Medical Record (EMR)

Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE)

Clinical Decision Support (CDS)

Personal Health Record (PHR)
