Health Informatics (HI) is a rapidly developing field where health sciences and information technologies converge to support and improve the status of individual and community health.
Professionals in the field of health informatics help to solve tough problems, such as:
- How could you consult a doctor without leaving home?
- Could a computer diagnose disease?
- Could a computer model tell us whether closing schools would stop the spread of a flu?
How could technology empower people to become active managers of their own health and health care?
How can we collect, store, and move massive amounts of health information safely and securely?
