    What is Information Technology?

    Information technology (IT) is a part of science that is involved with  the use of computers involving the storage, use and sending of data.  It is a relatively new science, which is becoming increasingly important in many  industries, due to the invaluable power of  applications of the computer.
    This new science is being applied to healthcare, which will become increasingly more important with time.  The abilities of computer information technologies to store and retrieve medical information has increased exponentially, and can analyze large data sets of the tsumani of facts accumulated by electronic medical records.  Prudent, organized and efficient  application of this huge amount of data (“Big Data”) has been shown to benefit healthcare (SOURCE), and is sure to improve is the coming years.

      The potential of this huge data tool was the reason for creation and establishment in September, 2011, of the newest medical subspecialty of IT Information Technology in medicine, “Medical Informatics”

    As of September, 011, there is a new career in Information Technology, the  whose goal is to collect, analyze, and apply, effectively and efficiently, Big Data, and to, moreover, harness the tremendously increased power of
    computers to a healthcare setting.
    As previously stated, accumlation of medical data will only increase tremendously from huge insatiable data assembling  sources such as
    1) wireless biosensors
    2) genome sequencing

    3) imaging

    4) EMRs

    5) Web 2.0

    User generated info (wiki, blogs, wikis,  online healthcare discussion groups)

    6) Data Stores

    has massive data on patient results, epidemiology, clinical trial. is a more refined, editorialized version of , specfically tailored for Medicine.

    Micromedex 2.0 is currently used by upwards of 3,500 hospitals, and in 80 countries, as of August, 2012.  This service employs more that 90 physicians, pharmacists, nurses and medical librairians to review, both current literature, as well as clinical trials.

    The below video shows the logistics behind a service like Micromedex.com

    The benefits to healthcare will be determined only how this mother lode of data is applied, and early studies show that it does ()  One method would be to construct algorithms on varying methods of disease treatment, from experience gleened from this huge data source tp construct plans on treating verious illnesses, and to reveal trends in medication results and other treatments.  Previously, this was obtained by experience, anecdotal evidence, and medical literature, which will also be used, besides the new, improved medical infomatics.

    An example of adaptation of IT Technology is shown in the Boston area, by a group, called 

    This group, composed of a group of leading hospitals in the Boston area provides a role model, using the latest IT technology, to co-orodinate and improve healthcare.  The group is setting up networks of sensors, wireless programs, and tracking systems, as a model for future widescale implementation for other hosptials.

    EHR database drastically enhances medical research

    Otherwise known as the “Rebel Mouse”  (Great website, by the way, a mother lode of info)

    Pretty much explains the field
