HIT 640 - Health IT Text Processing

[3]


This course provides an introduction to programming, text processing, and biomedical knowledge extraction for the health informatics professional. Students will gain the skills necessary to implement Perl based solutions to Health IT problems and bio-medical (BMI) research challenges. This course not only teaches programming, scripting and text processing, but also provides an understanding of the broader context regarding how these programming techniques are deployed to address Health IT/BMI challenges. This course teaches the programming interface and the techniques that can be used to write scripts and applications in Perl as well as provide an understanding how Perl is used to address BMI challenges and contribute to the core competencies associated with good BMI practice. This course also covers advanced concepts and capabilities, including object-oriented features, file and network I/O, and database interfaces. Upon completion, students will be able to use Perl techniques and commands to write scripts to perform various user and administrative tasks, and to utilize advanced features of the language. Student will also be able to articulate an understanding of how Perl is used in real Health IT/BMI use cases. As an end of course project students will implement, evaluate and refine a solution to explore biomedical data.
