What is Biomedical Informatics?

Defining Biomedical Informatics can often be a challenge given the many versions of informatics specialties that exist and the crossover from one specialty to the next. Medical informatics, bioinformatics, and health informatics are all closely related yet possess minute differences from one discipline to the next.

While informatics is used as a generalized term related to data storage, retrieval, and its related science, Biomedical Informatics serves to fuse the informatics and healthcare realms in an effort to optimize data use, scientific inquiry, and empower decision makers in an effort to improve human health. Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDS Systems) are two examples of how Biomedical Informatics have been applied to healthcare.
