Capstone Project

Capstone Project

Take a set of raw data and “convert” it into information by adding meaning to the data. This time you will choose your own data source and create the data manipulation necessary to transform your source from being raw data into meaningful information. Doing so will require an added layer of creativity as you choose the data source, the vehicle to give it meaning, and the format by which to present it. The goal is to develop your skills as a new community health informatician, while further ingraining in you the foundational principles driving health informatics. The “training wheels” from Module 2 are now gone (i.e., the data-source and conversion-to-information tools are up to you this time). You should develop your project in a manner similar to what you did in the previous exercise. Be sure to include how data differs from information and demonstrate that difference in how you present your project.
