Transcript of Health Informatics

Medical Informatics Medical Informatics is an emerging discipline that has been defined
as the study, invention, and implementation of structures and
algorithms to improve communication, understanding and management of
medical information. The end objective of biomedical informatics is
the coalescing of data, knowledge, and the tools necessary to apply
that data and knowledge in the decision-making process, at the time
and place that a decision needs to be made. The focus on the
structures and algorithms necessary to manipulate the information
separates Biomedical Informatics from other medical disciplines where
information content is the focus. Electronic Medical records Procedure Terminology Automated Drug Preparation Nursing Nursing Informatics is the study of different technologies
to improve and boost the nursing process by digitizing
data's and on-time electronic reminders. In addition, monitoring
patient's status is a time critical action that should be taken
into consideration while performing other tasks. Monitoring Laboratory informatics Laboratory informatics is a relatively new field that aims to expedite the exchange of laboratory data via electronic data exchange. Laboratory informatics specialists design standards and systems to support the acquisition, retrieval and communication of test results and other laboratory data.

Information systems are as critical to public health laboratories as instrumentation and reagents. Public health decisions and patient treatment hinge upon the rapid delivery of test results and other public health data. Mounting threats from terrorism, global disease and natural disasters make the need for electronic data exchange even greater. Yet public health laboratories still transmit much of their data on paper.

The pharmacy informaticist focuses on application of technology for pharmacists in supporting, streamlining, improving workflow, increasing patient safety with best practices and reliable systems. After recognizing the rapidly increasing role of the pharmacist in the use of healthcare information and management systems. Clinical informatics Clinical informatics is a method of organizing information in the health care industry. It blends information technology, computer science and biomedical informatics. Clinical informatics is a field that is constantly striving to make information more accessible in the simplest way. It involves storing, managing and accessing important health records.

Clinical informatics uses technology and computers to store data at an institution such as a hospital, doctor’s office or other health care facility. Since there are so many papers and files to process at any medical setting, an efficient system for keeping track of it all is required. Medical informatics becomes a way to organize and process the information. Examples of information stored in health informatics include disease research, patient backgrounds, statistics and treatment plans. • Medical Informatics
