About the CHIDSapedia.com Web site

CHIDSapedia was created with a simple mission in mind…to create community-driven knowledge about health information technology organizations and sectors. CHIDSapeadia’s informational content is built upon the experiences and understanding of the respective firms, their customers and the wider community. We believe social media has the potential to provide a more robust, balanced view of companies than traditional business directories. CHIDSapedia was developed by the Center for Health Information and Decision Systems (CHIDS) using Web 2.0 technology.

CHIDS at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland is an academia-led effort with collaboration from industry and government affiliates, designed to research, analyze, and recommend solutions to challenges surrounding the introduction and integration of information and decision technologies into the health care system. CHIDS offers the benefit of a world-class research staff and renowned scholars in technology implementation, adoption, assimilation, decision sciences and information technology. CHIDS serves as a focal point for thought leadership around the topic of health information and decision systems.
