Overview: Global health informatics seeks to create low-cost systems and devices to reduce health disparities worldwide. The Rollins School of Public Health and Emory’s proximity the Center for Disease Control are unique strengths in global health informatics research at Emory, and provide an excellent training environment for students and scholars. Emory investigators are currently working in rural Guatemala to develop phone-based diagnostics and cloud infrastructure to engage patients and healthcare workers in improving maternal and child health. At home, informatics enabled by mobile devices has a critical role to play in reducing health disparities experienced by rural and minority populations.
