Infographics: What is Health Informatics and What Are the Benefits?

Infographics: What is Health Informatics and What Are the Benefits? | Nursing and Health Informatics | Scoop.it

Many of us who work in health informatics sometimes struggle to articulate what it is we do. How many of you have parents, spouses, or older children who only have the vaguest notion about what you do and what it means? The breadth of the field means that it’s often difficult to enumerate and explain areas outside of our own area of emphasis.

I like infographics, because at their best they visually portray a concept in such a way as to make it easily understandable, even to those who are less familiar with the domain. At their worst they are biased, self-serving, misleading marketing pieces. Of course, an infographic can never convey the nuance and detail that can be communicated in an effective document or presentation, but is an overview.

From a visual standpoint, my problem with most infographics is that they usually have a very tall aspect ratio, and therefore better suited for blogs than for presentations.

This infographic from the University of Illinois at Chicago, does a reasonable job of explaining the field and it richness. It does not cover everything (and contains some glaring omissions, such as not even mentioning information science and not explaining fields like bioinformatics).  But for what it does cover, which is an overview of the benefits of clinical informatics, EHRs, and consumer health informatics, it’s a reasonable overview:

The impact of mobile technology on patient safety and better outcomes #mHealth

The impact of mobile technology on patient safety and better outcomes #mHealth | Nursing and Health Informatics | Scoop.it

With the proliferation of mobile devices and mobile applications in the health care industry, one significant advantage to the explosion of mobile health is the ability to deliver care more efficiently and improve patient safety. Clinicians are rapidly adopting mobile health technology; according the HIMSS Mobile Technology Survey, 45% of clinicians are using mobile technology to communicate across teams, collect data at the bedside, monitor patients and use bar code scanners on mobile devices. While these efficiencies are optimizing the continuum of care, mobile technology is also impacting patients.

 

Communication and alerting across the care team is critical, however ineffective processes can be detrimental to patient safety. The ECRI Institute identified alarm fatigue one of the biggest technology hazards in 2013 and will remain top of the list for 2014. This issue has been recognized by The Joint Commission, which proposed a new 2014 national patient safety goal of alarm management. Cerner has launched a comprehensive suite of capabilities which will not only help address this safety goal, but will reach well beyond it. The program will help weed out nuisance alarms, leaving only those that are actionable. It provides additive context and visibility to the clinician and introduces advanced analytic and decision support capabilities.

Mason Powers's curator insight, December 27, 2012 2:09 PM

Interesting article with 2 recommendations for Healthcare Providers & Payers in leveraging big data technologies:

 

1. Manage patient data holistically, and in new, innovative ways. 

 

This is exactly what Informatics Corporation of America is doing through their industry leading Health Information Exchange.  By powering this exchange with MarkLogic's enterprise-hardened NoSQL database technology, ICA is able to provide a holistic view of the patient across all delivery networks. 

 

2.  Combine data into huge analytical data sets that exist on cloud computing providers, providing universal open access.

 

This continues the discussion of the available technologies which can now combine ALL data:  diagnostic, treatment, and outcome data into a single, searchable repository (i.e. MarkLogic 6).  Analysts can combine this data, better understand factors of quality of care, and keep healthcare costs low.  Low healthcare costs = healthy Americans; this inverse relationship should be the most obvious and striking point to motivate both providers and payers to adopt a big data strategy that focuses on lowering costs.  Whereas lower costs leads to healthier citizens, it also leads to higher margins.   

 

The next generation of technologies is here:  technologies that can manage vast amounts of unstructured, strucutred, and poly-structured data, all from the same platform; technologies that can maintain performance, speed, and scale under constant ingest and high frequency queries; technologies that work better, enable innovation, and do so for much, much cheaper.  

 

Please take a look at www.marklogic.com to learn how we are helping leading Healthcare organizations leverage their big data and improve quality of care through shortened billing cycles with better outcomes.

Social Capital Is as Important as Financial Capital in Health Care

Social Capital Is as Important as Financial Capital in Health Care | Nursing and Health Informatics | Scoop.it
For a discipline so fundamentally altruistic, health care is oddly dysfunctional around relationships. That’s changing fast, of course, as providers are finding that cooperation is as critical to caregiving as cutting edge tests and therapeutics.
