Title: The Role for Engineers in Health Care Information Systems
Published: December 30, 2008
Abstract: Health care informatics deals with all the processes or "software" of the health care enterprise: modeling, design, simulation and implementation of health care information systems, support and control of manufacturing and its associated supply chains, and information and data management both in clinical practice and biological research. This paper discusses the major research issues in health care informatics and provides a brief summary of the informatics projects carried out under the Manufacturing Metrology and the Standards for the Health Care Enterprise program.
