JMIR Medical Informatics
Clinical informatics, decision support for health professionals, electronic health records, and ehealth infrastructures.
JMIR Medical Informatics (JMI, ISSN 2291-9694) is a top-rated, tier A journal which focuses on clinical informatics, big data in health and health care, decision support for health professionals, electronic health records, ehealth infrastructures and implementation. It has a focus on applied, translational research, with a broad readership including clinicians, CIOs, engineers, industry and health informatics professionals.
Published by JMIR Publications, publisher of the Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR), the leading eHealth/mHealth journal (Impact Factor 2015: 4.532), JMIR Med Inform has a slightly different scope (emphasizing more on applications for clinicians and health professionals rather than consumers/citizens, which is the focus of JMIR), publishes even faster, and also allows papers which are more technical or more formative than what would be published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research.
JMIR Medical Informatics journal features a rapid and thorough peer-review process, professional copyediting, professional production of PDF, XHTML, and XML proofs (ready for deposit in PubMed Central/PubMed). The site is optimized for mobile and iPad use.
JMIR Medical Informatics adheres to the same quality standards as JMIR and all articles published here are also cross-listed in the Table of Contents of JMIR, the worlds' leading medical journal in health sciences / health services research and health informatics (http://www.jmir.org/issue/current).

Background: P. lactiflora and P. lactiflora var. trichocarpa are all cultured in mostly locations of Baishao in China. Mostly farmer do not differentiate. P. lactiflora and P. lactiflora var. trichocarpa. The contents of paeoniflorin in Baishao in different locations are diverse. However, there are many medicinal ingredients such as gallic acid and albiflorin in Baishao in addition to paeoniflorin. Their contents are related to locations. Furthermore, the processing affects the efficacy of Baishao. Therefore, there is differene between Baishao and the raw root of P. lactiflora in chemically active ingredients. Objective: The objective of this study was to study the effect of circumstance and process on the content of chemical components in Bai Shao (Radix paeoniae A1ba). Methods: The content of gallic acid, catechin, albiflorin, paeoniflorin, benzoic acid and paeonol in raw Bai Shao in difference locations and that processed were determined with RP-HPLC. Then, the difference between the content of chemical components in raw and processed Bai Shao is analyzed. The correlation between circumstance and the content of chemical components in Bai Shao is analyzed also. Results: The result showed that there are differences between the content of chemical components in Bai Shao in different locations. Circumstance and age of Bai Shao affect the content of chemical components in Bai Shao. The content of albiflorin in Bai Shao increases along with the decrease of rainfall, integral air temperature and the increase of age. Conclusions: The circumstance, age and process affect the quality of Bai Shao. The process facilitates the realization of medicinal property and function of Bai Shao.
