Welcome to BHI

We serve and promote the field of Biomedical and Health Informatics.

About BHI

Our goal is to translate current biomedical research into Preventative, Patient-Centric, Participatory, and Personalized medicine. This includes taking research from the acquisition phase with hardware to data processing all the way to delivery of results back to patients and doctors.

The Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) at Baylor College of Medicine

Call For Proposals: @BCMSpaceHealth seeks proposals to develop a software-based, semi-autonomous platform to intake, manage and move biomedical data from spaceflight for research and clinical purposes. Proposals are due May 10, learn more here.

The Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) at Baylor College of Medicine, with consortium partners Massachusetts Institute of Technology and California Institute of Technology, announced today it is seeking proposals for a team to develop a robust platform that gathers and manages biomedical data from spaceflight participants for research and clinical purposes. The ability for a spaceflight participant’s biomedical data to accompany them during their spaceflight journey is critical to the goal of an autonomous medical system of the future. This capability will allow continuity across a mission or missions to document how the astronauts adapt to new and different extreme environments. This data will contribute to the evidence base and be used to predict if there is an increase in the probability of an undesirable performance or health outcome throughout the mission that should be mitigated.

On 12 March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 (COronaVIrus Disease 2019) outbreak a pandemic. COVID-19 has spread to more than 200 countries, territories, and international conveyances, infected more than 220 million people, and taken more than 4.5 million lives globally. The first annual IEEE Healthcare Summit was held virtually on 4-7 October 2021. This event aimed to report progress made in the fight against COVID-19, and in better preparations for future pandemics, through the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods and tools with Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI).
