Description:
Lectures are oriented on medical informatics definition and basic characteristic of the different specialized areas. The relations between IS and health care structure, financing and controlling are analyzed as well. Some basic information technology, HW and SW tools are described in relation to IS design. A special attention is paid to medical data coding and interpretation, data and communication standards. Different types and features of clinical and hospital IS, decision support systems and regional health care IS are analyzed and discussed. Methodology of IS development, implementation and support are presented as well.
