Description

Data and databases form the foundation from which patients and clinicians make informed healthcare decisions.  Our patient data is no longer stored solely in one healthcare institution like a hospital or a physician’s office but in multiple locations.  Many of these locations are non traditional sources like pharmacies, our home and mobile devices.  The data which was once static in the form of patient records now encompasses real time data from our smart devices.  To complicate matters even more, some of the data is highly structured and easy to search and other data is not.  The difficult challenge is to view and make decisions on data provided by multiple sources.
This course will lead you thru the fundamental concepts of healthcare data and databases.  The topics covered in this course are:
•The concept of “Big Data”
•The difference between Structured and Unstructured data
•The problems in integrating multiple data sources within one healthcare institution
•Hospital consolidation and what it means to consolidating healthcare data and databases
•Various methods of integrating multi hospital databases
The basic concepts behind Healthcare Information Systems are often presented in a very complex, difficult to understand style. This “PLAIN AND SIMPLE” series on Healthcare Information Systems is different. It strives to introduce the basic concepts of information technology and systems in a very simple and easy to understand format using many examples from both non healthcare and healthcare environments. This course is targeted at the entry level (Basic and Intermediate Level) learner.
The content of the series is based on the author’s 35 years experience in the healthcare information systems business. This experience spans product design and launch, marketing, business development and executive management (including president). In addition it is based on 15 years teaching at the graduate level in the University environment.
