Health Informatics
'Health informatics' is now tending to replace the previously commoner term 'medical informatics', reflecting a widespread concern to define an information agenda for health services which recognises the role of citizens as agents in their own care, as well as the major information-handling roles of the non-medical healthcare professions.
Health Information System
A Health Information System is an information system (i.e. a system of computer equipment, programs, procedures and personnel designed, constructed, operated, and maintained to collect, record, process, retrieve and display information) specific to the health care domain.

An ANSI approved American National Standard for electronic data exchange in health care. It enables disparate computer applications to exchange key sets of clinical and administrative information. Comprised of standard formats which specify the implementation of interfaces between different computer applications, HL7's protocols provide the flexibility needed to allow compatibility for specialized data sets that have facility-specific needs. Developed by HL7 members and designed to be applicable in numerous settings, HL7 ultimately saves time, money, and work for its users. HL7 facilitates the transfer of laboratory results, pharmacy data and other information between different computer systems. HL7 is not designed to support the transfer of the entire patient record. HL7 does not support the transfer of image data (such as from a PACS).
