GHHE 000/6210 - Public Health Informatics (3 cr.)



Description
Health informatics is an interdisciplinary field based on clinical medicine, mathematics, computer systems science and social sciences. Health informatics has been developed on this foundation to emerge as a separate scientific field with its own scientific issues and methods. It is of fundamental importance for effective information management within health and medical care, and for improving the quality of care and patient safety. Studies within health informatics develop knowledge about healthcare needs and the needs of patients/citizens for effective, appropriate information and knowledge management, and how its methods can be used to promote safe, knowledge-based, cost-effective, patient-centered and equal healthcare and prevention.
