Informatics & Health IT
Share |
The Informatics and Health IT sector is a discipline at the intersection of information science, computer science, social science, behavioral science, basic, translational and clinical research, and health care. It deals with the resources, devices, methods and software required for the acquisition, storage, retrieval, and use of information in health and biomedical research. Sector tools include computers, software, clinical guidelines, formal medical terminologies, and information and communication systems.
As a standalone sector, Informatics and Health IT is a difficult one to quantify. It underpins all other sectors, especially Pharmaceuticals & Therapeutics, Medical Devices & Equipment, Research, Testing & Medical Laboratories, with respect to the ensuing research, development, manufacturing, and patient use of products and services. As a result, NAICS classification isn't applied to the Informatics and Health IT sector, making it challenging to track its growth.
