Description & Coverage
Description:

Governments and policymakers worldwide are focusing on healthcare informatics because of the unprecedented global crisis brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of health data, technology, and access to health informatics and the application of several information technologies in the context of healthcare, including machine learning, telemedicine, 5G, big data, cloud computing, blockchain technologies, and mobile healthcare, are proving instrumental in pandemic control.

These technologies were already actively used in the healthcare sector before the pandemic. However, the pandemic has resulted in researchers and industry looking back at how these technologies could have helped deal with the aftereffects of the current pandemic and the emergence of any future pandemics. The topics covered in this book provide a fresh perspective on how healthcare informatics have handled the current pandemic and how improved healthcare informatics could help in a future crisis.
