The department's faculty are committed to creating inclusive research environments and deploying algorithms that promote equity and reduce healthcare disparities, and ultimately improve healthcare. Faculty in DBMI are supported by departmental investments in research administration, business operations, software engineering, and grant and scientific writing teams. The department has established promotion and tenure expectations that recognize real-world impact through multiple paths, including developing new technologies, informatics operations requiring independent intellectual contributions, and publication of original research.

The Anschutz Medical Campus includes a vibrant and entrepreneurial research community with multiple areas of excellence and translational impact. There are many opportunities on campus to translate data-intensive research advances into improved care. The Department of Biomedical Informatics is co-located on the Anschutz Medical Campus with the UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital, Children's Hospital Colorado, and the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center. DBMI enjoys collaborations with numerous centers and units on campus. For example, the CU Anschutz Center for Combat Medicine and Battlefield (COMBAT) Research has been created to solve the U.S. military's toughest medical challenges by leading high-impact research, education, and innovation, turning military medical research gains into better health care for all. The Anschutz Campus is home to Colorado's only Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute. The Colorado Center for Personalized Medicine houses the region's largest Biobank. The campus has invested significantly in an enterprise health data warehouse collecting electronic health record data from 15 hospitals and dozens of clinics for research. This warehouse integrates electronic health record data for 2.5M active patients from 12-member hospitals, more than 800 clinics, and state and national public health databases for research.
