Healthcare is widely viewed as the last major industry to embrace the information age. This seminar will discuss how health informatics will transform healthcare.
Computers have been used in healthcare from their earliest days. Much visionary work was done in the 1950’s and 60’s but it inevitably failed to achieve acceptance for technical and non-technical reasons we will discuss. As a result, healthcare is correctly widely viewed as the last major industry to embrace the information age. That is changing. We will explore the new technology landscape and look at some of the early transformative applications it has enabled around the world.
