Duration: 3 Days

Course Overview

Health Informatics is an all-embracing term which encompasses every aspect of Information Science and Information Technology (IT) used in healthcare delivery systems. It is the field concerned with the acquisition, use, and storage of information in healthcare, biomedical research, and public health. It covers the many facets of IT as applied in the healthcare environment. It begins with a definition of the term Health Informatics, discusses the various types of Health Information Systems and covers topics related to the implementation of IT in the healthcare settings including network infrastructures, standards (such as SNOMED, ICD, and LOINC) and interoperability issues, good data integrity and management, and challenges associated with IT implementation in healthcare institutions.

This module is part of Professional Certificate in Healthcare Computational Systems.
