Track 6. Healthcare informatics
We respectfully invite you all to attend our American Healthcare Summit
What is it Health informatics?
The application of computer and information sciences to the healthcare sector, public health, and individual patient care is known as health informatics. Storage, organisation, protection, retrieval, and analysis of medical data from various sources are also included in the field of health informatics. The outcomes of the data analytics can subsequently be used to alter healthcare facilities in the actual world.
Sub Tracks: Clinical research informatics Microengineering & Neuroinformatic Medical image computing and imaging informatics, patient portals, electronic medical records (EMRs), telehealth, healthcare apps, and a variety of data reporting tools
The fields of information science, computer science, and health care come together in health (medical) informatics. The tools, systems, and techniques needed to acquire, store, retrieve, and utilize information in health and biomedicine efficiently are the focus of this discipline.
Health Informatics: Types
There are many sub-disciplines within the expanding field of health informatics, including:
- Informatics in medicine
- IT in healthcare
- Informatics in pharmacy
- Informatics in public health
- Informatics in biomedicine
Hospital information systems, human resource management information systems, health management information systems, geographic information systems, mobile specialized program monitoring systems, and mobile health are some of the several sub-domains of health informatics.
Interoperability: At the moment, the majority of information systems are created in separate areas, which results in redundant or unclear information sharing and interchange. Interoperability enables users to retrieve necessary information from many sources using a single query thanks to the universal usage of common words and techniques for sharing information.

Information use: Integrating data creation and data is a difficulty for the health information system. It helps users compile data on service provision, preventative care, epidemics, clinical management, alerts and early warnings, program management, the planning process, the state of the health system, trend analysis, reporting, supervision, and monitoring.
Monitoring and Evaluation: Well-designed assessments supply the data information system designers require to guarantee a system’s operation, performance, usability, and security. Evaluations are useful for a variety of purposes, including helping system developers create and implement new health information systems, assisting in the decision-making process for public policy, and even understanding how the general public can use health information to make better healthcare choices.
