Health Informatics – Georgia Tech – Health Informatics in the Cloud

As we've said, health informatics
serves healthcare delivery, the translation of medical knowledge
into the care of actual patients. Its key components are electronic
medical records, which are created and used by licensed professionals, patient
generated personal health records. And a technology called
Health Information Exchange that can be used to share information
among providers and patients in order to aggregate information
to create a more comprehensive and holistic electronic health record,
to manage patient populations and the public health at large and
to support research of various kinds. Accomplishing this data exchange demands
technologies to assure privacy and security of health data
as required by law. And other technologies
to define standards so that data from diverse sources
can be meaningfully combined.
