For any innovation two things are most important viz. data from previous studies and inquisitive minds. Healthcare informatics systems make this simple and easy by making data accessing and processing easy. When this is done, segregated data sets reach the right professional teams and better results are delivered. Healthcare informatics systems find application in all healthcare sectors including dentistry, clinical care, pharmacy, public health, drug development, occupational therapy, physical therapy, nursing and even alternative medicines. Thus, anyone professionally trained in healthcare informatics can opt to specialise either in clinical informatics, pharmacy informatics, public heath informatics, community health informatics, nursing informatics, medical informatics, consumer health informatics or informatics for education and research in health and medicine.
The above clearly defines huge scope and opportunities for professionals in healthcare informatics. Again the work offered in the field has variations and thus choices to select from. These include:
PG diploma in HI adds advantage for those already in the industry as a tag of professional training and those new to the industry feel comfortable with backing of apt and up-to-date information and training required to have sustained growth in the industry. Same is true for the professionals who are already a part of the industry but are keen on making lateral movement in their company or industry or seek job change.
