Abstract

In the last 50 years, computational applications have been developed to aid clinicians and researchers alike in the broad field of Biomedicine. Adopted early in the evolution of the field, the term medical informatics has been applied to the various sub-disciplines of computer applications and methods of organizing and using information principles and techniques in both clinical care and biomedical research. This chapter provides a broad survey of the complex discipline of Biomedical Informatics with special emphasis on the key emerging sub-disciplines such as translational informatics, clinical research informatics, consumer health informatics, and the informatics of the “omics” sciences, systems biology, and nanotechnology.
