Other Biomedical informatics

  1. Oct 19, 2016 #1
    Hey, all:

    I'm interested in possibly branching into this field. What is it like? I know there is an overlap with bioinformatics and computer some computer science.

    Anyone has any hands-on experience that they can share?

    Biomedical informatics

    These are possible examples from very simple activities that i do as technician or patient:

    I've just made an electronic health record with Access database which is applied on monitoring of workers in my hospital - I'm going to take a course of distance learning to acquire continuing medical education credits for my carrere.

    My pharmacy has just started a service of telemedicine, a remote control of ecg by a specialist that writes a diagnosis on line - Few days ago i went to emergency room where in real time physicians got my parameters from medical imaging and blood tests.

    What I wrote is referred to medical informatics actually. As you know biomedical informatics gives knowledge and computational methods for problem solving not only in medical but also in biological field.

    In Italy at the University of Genoa, you can study it, in particular:

    - bioinformatics integrative, an envelope of an unified access to datasets, for example genomics and proteomics, via semantic web, metadata and ontology, or datawarehouse, to extract and integrate in a database;

    - computational biology /system biology, an application of data-analytical and theoretical methods, mathematical modeling and computational simulation techniques to the study the evolution of complex biological systems.
