Health Informatics-2015

OMICS International is overwhelmed and delighted to announce the inception of the novel event “2nd International Conference on Health Informatics & Technology”. The most awaited event would be staged during July 27-29, 2015, at Valencia, Spain. With the theme upholding “To share knowledge & experience on information technology practice for better healthcare”, the event is assured to bring forth transparent and significant changes in the Health care sector. As the name suggests, the concept of health informatics is the intersection of computer science with healthcare. OMICS Group meetings mainly focuses on getting the right information to the right person at the right time i.e. dealing with collection, storage, retrieval, methods required to optimize the acquisition, communication and use of information in health and biomedicine and considered as essential in healthcare delivery.

Conference Highlights:

  • Information technologies for healthcare delivery and management
  • Health data acquisition, management, and visualization
  • Healthcare knowledge management and decision support
  • Health information system engineering
  • Interactions with health information technologies
  • Data analytics, data mining, and machine learning
  • Health information systems
  • Healthcare communication networks and environments
  • Healthcare application in systems and technologies
  • Health Economics and Outcome Research
  • Clinical and Public Health Informatics

The Spanish government has focused its healthcare costs per capita run at €1,554; 71.2% of these costs are provided publicly from general taxation, with a system set up in 1986 and modeled on the NHS (but with varying degrees of delegation to the regions – six regions run healthcare using tax money from Valencia and Madrid, while the Basques run their own system using taxes raised locally). There appears to be no central IT strategy; expenditure is largely driven by hospital investment in system integration and patient management. Overall expenditure should be €552m in 2005, which amounts to €15 per capita or 0.97% of the health budget.

Scope of Health Informatics:

To date, the domain of Health Informatics has not been clearly defined or commonly understood within the Australian healthcare industry. Health Informatics is the application of information science and computer science to healthcare. To be effective, Health Informatics requires knowledge in technical (Information and Communication Technology - ICT), clinical and administrative (including governance and business) domains as they relate to healthcare. Health Informatics is applicable to all levels and settings of healthcare, including health related research.

Health Informatics which aims to improve health outcomes and healthcare system performance in direct patient care, design and governance of healthcare organizations and the healthcare system, and health knowledge discovery and management, through the application of technology (hardware, software, and communication). Knowledge management refers to the collection and use of clinical and service information to improve health outcomes and healthcare system efficiency, for example care pathway automation and clinical decision support.

Why Valencia?

The Alzira model was designed in 1999 as a pioneering approach to using private capital to finance hospital services and further adapted in 2003. By giving responsibility for a population's full healthcare provision to a private provider this approach enabled the regional government of Valencia to provide free and universal integrated healthcare to a designated region and within budget. Over 20 per cent of the populations of the Valencia region are now covered by similar contracts.

Healthcare is provided mainly in the public network of health services, with its 10,202 local health facilities, 2,916 health centers and 300 hospitals, which attend over 46 million inhabitants. It can thus be defined as an integrated public healthcare service. In addition to the public facilities, in Spain there are over 500 private hospitals, in which over 40% of the discharges are paid for by the public sector. Healthcare in this country is organized in such a way that a clear distinction exists between the two levels of care. Primary health care is an integrated system composed of primary care centers (local health facilities and health centers) and multidisciplinary teams.

In 2012 the MRC brought together a consortium of ten funders to establish e-health informatics research centres across the UK. A total of £19m was awarded to four centres based at University College London, and the universities of Manchester, Swansea and Dundee. To further strengthen the UK’s capability in analysing and linking health data, the MRC invested an additional £20m into these Centres to create the Farr Institute of Health Informatics Research in May 2013.

Healthcare Information Technologies and Communication:

Health Care Informatics is an emerging specialization in the health care industry that joins the disciplines of clinical health, management and epidemiological studies through the emergence of information technology and communication by providing new ways for health.

Health Data Acquisition, Management, Visualization:

Information technology has ability to improve the quality, productivity and safety of health care management. However, relatively very few health care providers have adopted IT. Lower dissemination is due partly to the intricacy of IT investment, which goes beyond procuring technology to change in modus operandi, and ensuring that general practitioners, nurses, and other staff use it. The policymakers need to better understand how information technology is diffusing across health service providers. Build for the future- Get ideas about a career that conjoins the technical world of computer applications and the varied environment of the health care providers. Network, Connect and Exchange ideas about the latest information on global health informatics. Extend real-time communications of health informatics among health care professionals facilitating the relevant use of health information systems and exchange of health information among health care and public health sector professionals.

Health care Application in Systems and Technologies:

Health care Application in Systems and Technologies influences need for innovative approaches to the design and delivery of healthcare to improve health and wellness. Technology is enabling healthcare in becoming progressively boundary-less and to meet the demand by use of emerging technologies. As in Therapeutic systems and technologies, Telemedicine, Software systems in medicine, E-Health, Healthcare in cloud computing Sensors-based Applications, Mobile health care applications.          

Health care Modeling and Simulation:

Health care modeling and mircosimualtion models are fast becoming an important analytical tool that policymakers and practitioners are using in a Post-ACA implementation world. Collecting terabytes of data and using it effectively are two very different tasks. The latest trends in efficient and effective ways to use data to analyze a wide array of health data is important today and this can be achieved through proper health care knowledge management and decision support systems.

Health Economics and Outcomes Research:

Health economics and outcome research is concerned issues related to efficiency, effectiveness, value and behavior in the production and consumption of health and health care where health economists evaluate the functioning of health care systems and health-affecting behaviors.

Interactions with Health Information Technologies:

Interactions with Health Information Technologies represents advances in wearable technology being announced at a more frequent pace, the interactions with Health IT systems will increase as well. This session focus on future trends and how the technology landscape will change as a result. A criticism of modern Health IT systems and software is the manner in which information is communicated to providers, patients and health plans. Health care Communication Networks and Environment will focus on understating the complex environment and how to enhance communication among all stakeholders.      

Clinical Health Informatics:

Clinical Health Informatics is applied in healthcare or individual health settings. The application of informatics focused on specific healthcare disciplines usually includes the name of that discipline, such as nursing informatics, dental informatics, mental health informatics, Nursing informatics, Pharmacy informatics, medical informatics, veterinary informatics, primary care informatics, etc. Public Health Informatics is the application of informatics in areas of public health, including surveillance, reporting, and health promotion.
