Health Informatics Research Papers

During the elective course, ‘Introduction to Health Information Technology and Informatics’, now offered online by Indiana University School of Medicine – Terre Haute (IUSM-TH), fourth year medical students complete a final review paper on an approved topic. The scope of the papers are targeted by the medical specialty each student is preparing to enter for residency. Therefore, the paper topics cover the full spectrum of modern medicine in their convergence with Health IT and Informatics. Some examples of previous topics are listed below.

This course has been offered since May of 2015 and past student reviews claim the course helped them significantly when beginning residency. The “Intro to HIT & Informatics” course (#84ZM700) is delivered entirely online and is offered during all months except July and August. Any students interested in enrolling in the elective during their third or fourth year should contact the course director, JB Orndorff (healthit@iupui.edu) and coordinator, Kelly Hall (kelly.hall@indstate.edu).

Journal of Healthcare Informatics Research serves as a publication venue for the innovative technical contributions highlighting analytics, systems, and human factors research in healthcare informatics.

Journal of Healthcare Informatics Research is concerned with the application of computer science principles, information science principles, information technology, and communication technology to address problems in healthcare, and everyday wellness.  Healthcare Informatics Research highlights the most novel technical contributions in computing-oriented healthcare informatics.  Healthcare informatics covers three major tracks: (1) analytics - focuses on data analytics, knowledge discovery, predictive modeling (2) systems - focuses on building healthcare informatics systems (e.g., architecture, framework, design, engineering, and application) (3) human factors - focuses on understanding users or context, interface design, health behavior, and user studies of healthcare informatics applications.  

Topics include but not limited to:

healthcare software architecture, framework, design, and engineering;

electronic health records
