3Qs: Taking a patient-​​facing approach to health care

The United States spends $2 tril­lion in health care annu­ally. New tech­nolo­gies and approaches to health care have led to a growing field in health infor­matics, which has a focus on both the clin­ical and per­sonal aspects of the industry. We asked Tim­othy Bick­more, an asso­ciate pro­fessor in the Col­lege of Com­puter and Infor­ma­tion Sci­ence, to dis­cuss the impact this field can have on the health care industry as a whole, as well as Northeastern’s new PhD pro­gram in health informatics.
