Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Biomedical Information Communication Center (BICC) at OHSU was completed and opened in 1991. The objective of this building was to bring together all departments at OHSU that offered information or communication services. At the time, that included the Library, EdComm, the EduTech Center, photography, telecommunications, and academic computing. As part of the BICC, Dr. J. Robert Beck, along with Dr. Kent A. Spackman, brought a new research program to OHSU: biomedical informatics. The informatics program moved to the 5th floor of the BICC in 1991 and began a training program in 1992. The BICC was focused on expanding the informatics program, and providing training and services in all things information, communication, and research. In 1996, the BICC celebrated its 5th anniversary.
