Groundbreaking health informatics book shows health-care infrastructure solutions
Date:8/29/2011

University of Illinois professor Bruce Schatz, a faculty member at the Institute for Genomic Biology, has co-authored a groundbreaking book on Health Informatics, based on his popular computer science course. The text is the first book combining the solutions of modern computer science with the problems of modern medical science. The book is expected to be a key reference for professionals working in health management, from information to healthcare executive, health information technologist to computer scientist, and physician to patient.

Contained within is a comprehensive survey detailing the use of modern computing to support modern medicine. Computer and information science solutions can address the problems of medicine and public health, specifically the lack of health measurement, and supercomputers and sensors are now able to support adequate health management. Viable healthcare has a practical solution through Internet technologies.

"Much of health information is neither black nor white, but resides in the center of an information distribution curve, the grey area in-between well and sick, positive and negative," says Schatz. Schatz explains that while medical records are stored on databases and retrieved on computers, the information remains mostly on paper with handwritten notes and test results.

There is a way of utilizing both the electronic medical record of the past and the personalized genomic medicine of the future. It gathers information from all the sources affecting personal health: from the bodies of individuals to the societies of populations.

"What is needed is a vast backbone, a health care infrastructure consisting broadly of health and deeply of medical information, which is recorded through personal sensors, analyzed on supercomputers, communicated through networks, and accessed through computers," says Schatz. His new book is about that infrastructure: who will use it, what problems it solves
