Healthcare informatics concerns the collection, storage, communication, retrieval, analysis, and interpretation of information. Ultimately, it offers the means by which we improve understanding, management, and communication of medical information so that we can apply it to provide the best possible health care (Enrico Coiera, BMJ 7173 Volume 317: Saturday 12 December 1998)
