Health Informatics is concerned with the technological information derived from productive collections and resources, devices, security, knowledge of health data, and methods to optimise the acquisitions, depositaries, and repossessions in health and biomedicine. It is the common point between information science, computer science, and health care.

Health Informatics is more than just technology because it focuses more on what users intend to do with the collected data. It is also a rapidly growing area of healthcare that makes exceptional use of information and technology to provide patients with better healthcare services.

Health Informatics courses are fully interdisciplinary in nature. They address the needs of health professionals in combination with clinical, technical, and aspects of healthcare. They allow students to learn about the interaction of technology, people, health, and healthcare systems. They also contribute to the development of the ability to use technological and informational management. In addition, they enable students to develop effective communication, organisational and analytical skills.
