Health Informatics 2018
8th International Conference on Health Informatics & Telemedicine” includes 16 Tracks/Sessions and 80+ Sub-Tracks listed below. The theme Uploading “Improving Patients outcomes through NEXTGEN Health Innovations”, The event is assured to bring forth transparent and significant changes in the Health care sector.
Technology is one of the most pervasive and ubiquitous tools in healthcare today. It is not only transforming healthcare but also the professions within it. Health informatics involves a variety of sciences including information, computer, social, behavioural and management. It strives to improve the delivery of patient care through the generation of higher quality data for better informational baselines. Applied across the healthcare spectrum, from nursing and clinical medicine to occupational and physical therapy, it ultimately aims to create better quality of care and improved efficiencies, while also spurring new opportunities.
Medical informatics is the intersection of information science, computer science, and healthcare. This field deals with the resources, devices, and methods required to optimize the acquisition, storage, retrieval, and use of information in health and biomedicine. It is a multidisciplinary field of informatics, decision support systems, telemedicine, ethics, consumer health informatics, international healthcare systems, global health informatics, translational research informatics, and home care.
Clinical research is the science that supports the evaluation of safety and effectiveness of therapeutics (medications and devices), diagnostic tools, and treatment regimens. Clinical research includes a variety of study designs and methods to support patient-oriented research, clinical trials, outcomes research, epidemiologic and behavioural studies, and health services research. Clinical research informatics, then, is the branch of informatics that supports all these research activities, particularly the collection, management, and analysis of data for varied types of studies. Research approaches can be characterized broadly as either interventional or observational. To date, CRI has focused largely on the support of interventional trials, but there is momentum around observational research and clinical data mining, both of which are particularly relevant to this.
A number of recent experiences in a variety of health organisations have caused me to reflect on aspects of clinician engagement. The last decade has spawned considerable discussion and research on this topic. The use of “clinician” as a generic term encompasses all health professionals, but we know we are talking primarily about doctors as there is no point in engaging all of the other clinicians if doctors are not part of the equation. In health services, doctors determine most of the costs are able to effectively sabotage strategy and can make the most noise and media impact, so clinician engagement activities need to be focused here.
Neuroinformatics may be an analysis field involved with the organization of Neurobiology information by applying of process models and analytical tools. These areas of analysis are necessary for the combination and analysis of more and more large-volume, high-dimensional, and fine-grain experimental information. Neuroinformatics offer process tools, mathematical models, and make practical databases for clinicians and analysis scientists. Neurobiology may be a heterogeneous field, consisting of the many and varied sub-disciplines so as for our understanding of the brain to still deepen, it's necessary that these sub-disciplines are ready to share information and findings during a meaning way.
Cancer is a remarkably adaptable and formidable foe. Cancer exploits many biological mechanisms to confuse and subvert normal physiologic and cellular processes, to adapt to therapies, and to evade the immune system. Decades of research and significant national and international investments in cancer research have dramatically increased our knowledge of the disease, leading to improvements in cancer diagnosis, treatment, and management, resulting in improved outcomes for many patients. Nursing informatics is a combination of cognitive science, computer science, information science, and nursing science. It includes the development, analysis, and evaluation of information systems augmented by technologies that support, enhance and manage patientcare. Pharmacy informatics as a specialty practice area, resources to improving the quality of pharmacy IT and medication-management systems. The pharmacy informaticist focuses on application of technology for pharmacists in supporting, streamlining, improving workflow and increasing patient safety with best practices and reliable systems.
Track 6: Wearable Sensing Informatics
Developed technologies are truly able to reduce the overall costs for prevention and monitoring. This is possible by constantly monitoring health indicators in various areas, and in particular, wearable devices are considered to carry this task out. These wearable devices and mobile apps now have been integrated with telemedicine and Tele health efficiently, to structure the medical Internet of Things. Wearables, with the help of improved technology have been developed greatly and are considered reliable tools for long-term health monitoring systems. These are applied in the observation of a large variety of health monitoring indicators in the environment, vital signs, and fitness.
Translational bioinformatics is “the development of storage, analytic, and interpretive methods to optimize the transformation of increasingly voluminous biomedical data, and genomic data, into proactive, predictive, preventive, and participatory health” Put more simply, it is the development of methods to transform massive amounts of data into health. The widespread usage of electronic health records for clinical research has produced multiple electronic phenotyping approaches. Methods for electronic phenotyping range from those needing extensive specialized medical expert supervision to those based on semi-supervised learning techniques.
Health data integration is considered a key component and, in some cases, a pre-requisite in nearly every systematic attempt to achieve integrated care. In the context of health care, data integration is a complex process of combining multiple types of data from different sources into a single infrastructure, allowing multiple levels of users to access, edit, and contribute to an electronic record of health services. The types of data integration that are performed depend on the quality, quantity, and capability of the service performing the integration as well as the needs of the current and future users of the new framework.
Telehealth is a collection of means and method for enhancing health care, public health and health education delivery and support using telecommunications technologies. Telemedicine allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients at a distance using telecommunications technology. The approach has been through a striking evolution in the last decade and it is becoming an increasingly important part of the American healthcare infrastructure.
Track 10: Medical Informatics in Telemedicine
The role of medical informatics in telemedicine is dependent on using the power of the computerized database to not only feed patient specific information to the health care providers, but to use the epidemiological and statistical information in the data base to improve decision making and ultimately care. The computer is also a powerful tool to facilitate standardizing and monitoring of care and when applied in continuous quality improvement methodology it can enhance the improvement process well beyond what can be done by hand. The coupling of medical informatics with telemedicine allows sophisticated medical informatics systems to be applied in low population density and remote areas.
Health information Technology is the application of information processing involving both computer hardware and software that deals with the storage, retrieval, sharing, and use of healthcare information, data, and knowledge for communication and decision making. HIT, technology represents computers and communications attributes that can be networked to build systems for moving health information. Telecardiology is a modern medical practice, which uses the power of telecommunications to achieve remote diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. This includes coronary heart disease, chronic and acute, as well as arrhythmias, congestive cardiac failure and sudden cardiac arrest. Teleophthalmology is a branch of Telehealth that delivers eye care through digital medical equipment and telecommunications technology.
Track 12: Translational and Personalized Medicine
Translational medicine is a multi-faceted discipline with a focus on translational therapeutics. In a broad sense, translational medicine bridges across the discovery, development, regulation, and utilization spectrum. It may include application of research findings from genes, proteins, cells, tissues, organs, and animals, to clinical research in patient populations, all aimed at optimizing and predicting outcomes in specific patients. Personalized medicine aims to provide a platform for research that will revolutionize patient care through the use of novel molecular predisposing screening, diagnostic, prognostic and pharmacogenomics.
Track 13: eHealth, mHealth & Digital Healthcare
eHealth is the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) for health. The eHealth unit works with partners at the global, regional and country level to promote and strengthen the use of ICT in health development, from applications in the field to global governance mHealth (mobile health) is a general term for the use of mobile phones and other wireless technology in medical care.
Digital health is the convergence of the Digital and Genomic Revolutions with health, healthcare, living, and society. Digital health is empowering us to better track, manage, and improve our own and our family’s health, live better, more productive lives, and improve society.
Track 14: Health information and management system
Health Information Management is the management of personal health information in hospitals or other healthcare organizations enabling the delivery of quality healthcare to the public. It is a combination of business, science, and information technology. This Technology focus on records management, terminology, coding, transcription and the business of health care related to medical records management.
Track 15: Web-based and Remote Medicine
Web-based medicine uses this technology to help surgeons in developing regions of the world gain direct access to recognized experts. This serves to empower local surgeons in the developing world through direct skill-transfer and encouraging academic pursuit. Web-based medicine follows the paradigm of a university without borders, therefore requiring exacting patient record keeping, monthly peer review, and continuing medical education of all its participants. All those who participate in Web-based medicine have undergone a credentialing process to guarantee that they possess adequate credentials. Patient confidentiality is strictly maintained. Web-based medicine also provides a follow-up strategy for medical volunteer groups who provide overseas services.
