Health Informatics is the science that underlies the fusion of health care, information
technology, and business administration, and guides its integration into all aspects of the patient
health experience, at the individual or population level. It creates the infrastructure that connects
and enables the flow of critical information to and from each of the stakeholders in a patient’s or
population care.
