Computers and IT have changed a lot of aspects of our lives and healthcare is no exception. Contemporary health coverage has become intertwined with a vast array of new technologies. For many modern medical institutions, the pace of technological change has outpacesd the human capacity to keep up. Modern healthcare is becoming more and more dependent on the different solutions that IT can offer. Health Informatics is the emerging type of knowledge that bridges healthcare and IT worlds in order to boost the safety, quality and efficiency of the service in addition to making life easier for healthcare professionals.
Infomatics is a newer concept, born of the past 10 years, which attempts to bridge the gap between traditional information sources and the newer technologies of "big data." This site was created with the assistance of many, including our 2016 data partner Opportunity Health Center, in Palo Alto California.
Health Informatics can be defined in different ways.
Wikipeadia and Ehow definintions try to define and explain what it is.
Health Informatics can also be known as Health Information Systems, Healthcare Informatics, Medical Informatics, Clinical Informatics, Nursing Informatics, or Biomedical Informatics (the latter is restricted to Biomedicine as the name suggests) .
This site is created by the master students at the Health Informatics program at Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. We aim to create a well known platform about Health Informatics for any students around the world engaged in studies in Health Informatics or those already in the market working with the development of the health care systems.
Health Informatics is a very broad area of expertise which provides you with the knowledge that is needed in the industrial sector, academic sector or clinical sector.
Depending on what background you have, it will be a guiding role to where you can apply your knowledge for different job opportunity’s.
But it is only you that set the limits on where you think your knowledge and resources can be best used.
We also want to give a good picture of what Health Informatics is for anyone that has an interest in starting their own studies or just curios about the subject.
Hope you will enjoy your stay.
