Using innovative and appropriate technologies, process streamlining, and integrated best
practices, regulatory compliance and standards bring vital information to health
professionals and patients the moment they need it, wherever they may be – at home, on
vacation, at a clinic, in an ambulance, at a patient’s bedside, or in a physician’s office.
Health informatics makes smart connections and facilitates data analysis, pulling
meaningful information to the surface and bringing new insights into current challenges. It
meets the commitment to better patient safety and quality of care.
It means patients can access all of their medical records – including prescription
medications, lab results, radiology, and treatment plan – on their smartphones and
communicate results from home monitoring devices back to their providers.
It means a physician doing hospital rounds can access his or her patients’ complete medical
history on his/her tablet, including lab results, x-ray images, and contact information for
other care providers. The physician can be automatically alerted if one of his/her patients
has a significant change in vital signs and has the ability to connect with patient support
systems (such as family caregivers) to meet patient needs.
It means clinical researchers can more easily identify research cohorts, improve patient
accrual, manage protocols, receive real-time alerts of adverse events, facilitate site and
patient monitoring, comply with FDA requirements, and bring drugs to market months or
even years earlier.
It means previously disparate information from doctors, pharmacies, labs, and insurers can
seamlessly connect in one health system. Clinicians in one hospital can read results from a
lab in another hospital. Administrators can perform analysis from combined system-wide
data – reducing costs and stopping fraud.
It carries profound implications for global health, allowing for more efficient access to and
improved quality of care globally at reduced cost.
It the realm of public health, it facilitates epidemiology studies, surveillance, and
prevention programs. It holds the potential to move disease from acute episodal care to
prevention and early detection.
