It is a multidisciplinary field that uses health information technology (HIT) to improve health care via any combination of higher quality, higher efficiency and new opportunities.
It is also called as health care informatics, healthcare informatics, medical informatics, nursing informatics, clinicalinformatics, or biomedical informatics.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2016 then, impact factor = Y/X
