The Children's Hospital Informatics Program (CHIP) is a multidisciplinary applied research and education program at Boston Children's Hospital. CHIP investigators work at the intersection of information science, healthcare and biomedical discovery, advancing the state-of-the-art in functional genomics, personalized medicine, biomedical research collaboration and public health.

Since 1995, CHIP researchers have worked to set the highest standards for patient autonomy and privacy. Our "Instrumenting the Healthcare Enterprise" initiatives focus on accelerating collaborative research across institutions, and on providing tools and services directly to patients, allowing them to be become more active, engaged participants in both their own healthcare and the broader research community.
