Health Informatics for better and safer healthcare

Maxim Topaz, IsraelX

Learn when and how Informatics is used in different fields of healthcare, what the benefits are and the challenges that still lie ahead.

Healthcare providers around the globe (e.g., doctors, nurses, physical or occupational therapists, etc.) are increasingly relying on health information technology, like electronic health records, for their daily routine tasks. Although using health information technology holds tremendous promises (like personalized and precision medicine to all) it can also result in unforeseen consequences leading to patients’ harm. To fulfill the promise of better and safer care through information technology, health providers need to learn about the existing systems design and capabilities while technical experts (e.g., computer programmers) need to understand the complex healthcare needs and processes. This course aims to bridge the current gaps in health informatics education and introduce the major aspects of the field to novice and advanced clinical and technical audiences.  Health & Safety, Medicine, Computer Science
