Informatics

Informatics is the science of information, the practice of information processing, and the engineering of information systems. Informatics studies the structure, algorithms, behavior, and interactions of natural and artificial systems that store, process, access and communicate information. It also develops its own conceptual and theoretical foundations and utilizes foundations developed in other fields. Since the advent of computers, individuals and organizations increasingly process information digitally. This has led to the study of informatics that has computational, cognitive and social aspects, including study of the social impact of information technologies.

Informatics in Health Sciences has shown to be effective in recording, monitoring, and analyzing data for research purposes.

Our core research topics in Informatics at this time are:

  • Artemis Real-Time Decision Support System
  • Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Technology Capacity Audit and Modelling
  • Patient Journey Modelling
