Abstract

CAPURRO, Daniel et al. Biomedical informatics. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2011, vol.139, n.12, pp.1611-1616. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872011001200013.

Biomedical Informatics is a new discipline that arose from the need to incorporate information technologies to the generation, storage, distribution and analysis of information in the domain of biomedical sciences. This discipline comprises basic biomedical informatics, and public health informatics. The development of the discipline in Chile has been modest and most projects have originated from the interest of individual people or institutions, without a systematic and coordinated national development. Considering the unique features of health care system of our country, research in the area of biomedical informatics is becoming an imperative.

Keywords : Computational Biology; Health Policy; Medical Informatics; Public Health Informatics.
