Informatics Medicine as an Intervention That Uses Medicine Informatics Data Systems

Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST, volume 16)


This paper aims to provide an introductory emphasis on the use of Informatics for medical purposes, that is designated ‘Informatics Medicine’. Traditionally the focus of medical data management (‘Medical informatics’) has been supported by intelligent decision technologies within the health system, but with the level of drug resistance viruses increasing with overall health management costs, an alternative approach may be plausible. Medical interventions using data (‘Informatics Medicine’) might be considered to be on the flip side of traditional ‘Medicine informatics’ but yet, is likely to enable options in the medicine practitioner’s intervention Toolkit. These Toolkits could be used via Biorheology interfaces that may use Near-Field Communication or Artificial Intelligent plasmas, foams, gels or glues. As a wayforward, an ‘Informatics Medicine’ conceptualisation has been put forward within the context of Intelligent Decision Technologies.
