Health informatics and CDSS are the advanced health care technologies with the support of many technological fields. Health informatics and CDSS apply various computerized devices to provide enhanced health-related outcomes in terms of problem solving, analytical thinking, and decision making. Health informatics and CDSS help clinicians and health care providers to make complex information useful in supporting clinical decisions, thus delivering the best standard of care for each patient. The chapter argues that utilizing health informatics and CDSS has the potential to increase health outcomes and reach strategic goals in global health care.
Chapter Preview


The market of tools, devices, and processes for both medical treatments and medical diagnosis has been growing at a very fast pace, driven by the multidisciplinary development of innovative technologies (Catapano & Verkerke, 2011). Health care providers require the timely and accurate information about their patients (El Morr, 2014). Health informatics is the use of devices and resources to collect, store, move, and retrieve data to support health care (Mahmood, 2008). Health care systems are complex and often approach a deterministic chaos in the number and types of interactions that occur among health care providers and patients (Johnson & Tashiro, 2011).
