This course will help health sciences librarians understand the issues of big data in clinical outcomes and what roles health sciences librarians can take on in this service area. Course content comes from information shared by the presenters at the “Using Data to Improve Clinical Patient Outcomes” forum, top picks from the NNLM Data Curation/Management Journal Club articles, and completion of the course “Big Data Fundamentals” from Cognitive Class, and other areas selected by the course instructors. 

Please note that though this course is taught primarily asynchronously, there are deadlines to complete specific assignments. The next class will begin on July 9, 2018. You can register for the class by visiting The Big Data in Healthcare Class Webpage. (new window)
