ABOUT HEALTH INFORMATICS
HISA members share a common passion for health reform enabled by health informatics and digital health.
Health informatics is the science and practice around information in health that leads to informed and assisted health care. ‘Informed’ here means ‘that the right information about the subject (consumer, patient or population) together with relevant health knowledge, is available at the right time and in a form that allows it to be used. ‘Assisted’ here means ‘that the job of the health care worker is made safer and easier and that the health consumer is supported in their decisions and actions’.
HISA is the national affiliate of the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA).
