News and Events – Health Informatics
This month we welcomed our newest master's students to the Health Informatics program. We have 11 students that will begin their core curriculum courses at the end of this month and embark on their thesis journey.
Alumni Spotlight: Brian Paciotti
Brian Paciotti graduated from the Health Informatics program in 2011. Since graduating, Brian worked for the Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) at UC Davis, and recently shifted roles to the Quality and Safety Department in December of 2017. At the Quality and Safety Department, Brian’s primary responsibility is to provide analytical and programming support for a large quality program called PRIME that is managed by the California Department of Healthcare Services. In this role, Brian works with clinicians and other informatics professionals to transform complex performance measure requirements into algorithms that exact and process clinical data from the EMR. In addition, he works to create actionable business intelligence dashboards to help clinical and administrative leaders prioritize opportunities to drive workflow changes that will in turn lead to an improvement in the quality of care.
We would like to congratulate our 2018 graduates. We are very proud of their accomplishments and look forward to their impact on the world of Health Informatics.
