What is Health Informatics?

Glossary

Health informatics (HI) is an interdisciplinary field that utilizes health information technology (HIT) to improve patient data management. This field intersects patient data, medical knowledge from healthcare officials, and technology to drive better patient care.

Health informatics or Health Information Systems (HIS) is a multidisciplinary field that focuses on using technology to improve healthcare systems and even patient outcomes. It’s important because of its wide-ranging influence in dealing with devices, resources, and methods. 

Doctors, medical staff, insurance companies, and even patients can share access to critical data by using telehealth, patient portals, electronic health records (EHRs), and practice management systems (EPMs). This data can include allergy information, diagnostic data, lab results, and treatment protocols being shared throughout the healthcare system.
