Informatics Department has established Inter Departmental Research Group
are Centre for Advanced Studies in Telecommunication (CAST), Computer Science Department
(CS), Health Information and Management System (HIMS) Ministry of Health. Health
Informatics Department (HI) encompasses health information systems used in health
care delivery and management. The Group focuses on the use of health information
technology to improve the quality and reduce the cost of health care.
Research Group members share an interest in health information technology issues
such as using technology to support patient-centered care, develop disease management
tools, enhance the coordination and continuity of care, identify beneficial uses
of the Internet, and assist in the timely collection of data. Telemedicine, e-Health
and Mobile Health Technology. Medical Imaging (DICOM, PACS) facilitate interaction
of individuals around specific topic areas relating to health informatics services
Research Group strives to provide a broad range of services and resources for health
informatics researchers, health professionals, and practitioners; we also recognize
the need for individuals to interact around specific topics.
Research Group members have an opportunity to exchange knowledge, disseminate research
findings, support clinical decision-making, build research skills, and network with
those sharing common goals. Research Groups provide a forum for members to share
information, with their peers, and learn more about a topic.
The Article-of-the-Year award recognizes the best scientific work that the fields
of health informatics services research have produced and published during the previous
calendar year. The award-winning article provides new insights into the delivery
of health care and advances knowledge of field of health informatics.
