Informatics is the science of information. As an academic field it involves the practice of information processing, and the engineering of information systems. It studies the structure, algorithms, behavior, and interactions of natural and artificial systems which store, process, access, and communicate information.
COMET is a web-based data application that can collect thousands of childhood variables and quickly convert the data into meaningful information to improve outcomes for children, families, and communities.
