Introduction

Healthcare informatics is a new field in healthcare systems. With increasing use of technologies while diagnosing, detecting and treatment of patients, lot of data gets generated while using wide variety of technologies and computer aided systems. This data which is big data in other form can be utilized efficiently when a proper computerized system is in place. The use of data can be beneficial for both the organization and the patient who is getting treated in the vicinity of the hospital or organization. Use of data for proper management of healthcare services has become new face of how healthcare organizations carry out management of services rendered by them to the needy patients. Healthcare informatics broadly deals with four areas. These areas are bioinformatics, medical informatics, public health informatics, and consumer health informatics. Healthcare informatics together helps in improving the quality of services rendered by hospitals or institutes, improves the patient care standards, increases the productivity, and helps in transferring the confidential information within the organizations or healthcare specialists. Healthcare informatics considers holistic improvement of healthcare standards, not only in the organization but also in specific community or city or the whole country. Huge amount of data generated with regular inpatient and outpatient services helps in making intelligent decisions during healthcare services improving the overall deliverables of services by the hospitals and institutes in order to raise the standards of end user care in other words patient care.

Recently UKchip, United Kingdom council for healthcare informatics professionals are working on system to be updated in order to bring together all the expert organization under one umbrella and systematically improve the quality standard of services rendered by the healthcare service providers all across the country located at wide locations.

Healthcare informatics would bring together collaboration not only between the national health organizations but also help them align and collaborate together with other globally located and global operating healthcare service providers.

There is increasing burden of lifestyle diseases and untreatable diseases over the countries. With the help of healthcare informatics these increasing burden of diseases could be dealt with efficient strategies in order to minimize their effect over the overall global population.

Healthcare informatics also brings the research organizations in close alignment with healthcare service providers and helps in bridging the gap between the research organizations and healthcare service organizations under the control of national organization.

Each and every system gets interconnected with each other and brings the different organization within the healthcare industry closer and at one interface. This helps in bringing down the confusion and wastage of energy and resources in order to provide care to the patients.

Healthcare informatics deals with two broad issues that is public health and community health. With informatics in place, the national organizations and global organizations can work together along with other healthcare organizations spread across the nation and globally and delivers information’s which helps in optimizing the patient care services with the end goal or reducing the disease burden over the nation or over the whole globe.

Healthcare informatics helps in bringing together all the players in healthcare systems under one umbrella. Be it the community service providers, local general practitioners, General surgeons, physicians, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, nurses, voluntary service providers, national health programs, community health programs, ambulance services, critical care service providers, emergency service providers, research organizations, pharmacies, pharmacists, scientists. All of them are interconnected with the help of healthcare informatics and share information with each other generated during providing their individualistic care to the end user.

With the help of healthcare informatics it’s very much interesting that quality systematics national programs conducted by governments on time to time basis gets executed with the help of healthcare informatics at each touch points where a particular patient interacts with the service providers. The data generated during such services gets fed into the system and a person located centrally in the country could access this quality information. Based on which governments are in access to the quality data and which they can use to develop healthcare policies and programs in order to improve the present conditions of disease burdens at wide variety of locations. Managing and controlling the services and professionals becomes a centralized task and helps in bringing optimization in the complete healthcare system.

Health informatics helps in dealing with challenges such as increasing cost of healthcare services and increasing expectations of the patients from the service providers. Across the world there is increasing burden of elderly population and other lifestyle diseases which hampers the whole system in dealing with this increasing burden. Also the advancements in technologies make the complete healthcare system highly costly and out of the reach of general population. In order to deal with these key challenges a healthcare informatics tools helps bringing the cost down and improving the patient satisfaction through quality services provided in accordance to the global standards and reaching the local population.
