Healthcare informatics is defined as the area of science and engineering that intends at fostering approaches and technologies for the procurement, handling, and learning of patient data, that can derived from various sources and procedure, for an example electronic health information, diagnostic test outcomes, medical scans. The health field contributes a hugely broad diversity of issues that can be addressed utilizing computational techniques. Public Health informatics, which is the convergence of human, technology, and information to enhance the quality and safety of patient healthcare, can be seen in multiple ways. For examples encompass patient portals, electronic medical records (EMRs), telehealth, healthcare apps, and a variety of data reporting tools. Healthcare informatics is a continuum of multidisciplinary areas that consists of learning of the blueprint, progress, and application of computational transformation to enrich health care. The disciplines entailed integrate  medicine  discipline with computing domains, especially computer engineeringsoftware engineeringinformation engineeringbioinformaticsbio-inspired computingtheoretical computer scienceinformation systemsdata scienceinformation technologyautonomic computing, and behaviour informatics.

Several academic organizations, medical informatics investigation concentrates on use of artificial intelligence in healthcare and fabricate medical instrument built on embedded systems.  Moreover, in certain part of the world, the word informatics is employed in the situation of applying library science to information administration in healthcare settings.
