Health informatics broadly describes the streamlining of patient data processes and the administration of health care; it is an interdisciplinary field that is dedicated to fixing the health data ecosystem, thereby improving care for all patients. Data-driven approaches will overhaul older forms of medical record keeping, to ease the work of medical professionals as well as the patient’s burden of sifting through paperwork and lab results and tracking their own health history.
