Adverse Drug Events Detection, Pharmacovigilance and Surveillance
"As clinical trials are performed with limited numbers of participants and limited investigation periods, they do not always clearly identify the full range of possible adverse events. Although postmarketing surveillance, which is executed by specialized agencies in many countries, has focused on gathering information on adverse drug events (ADEs), the identification of ADEs in actual clinical settings remains insufficient due to its dependence upon voluntary reporting. The introduction of electronic medical records (EMRs) by many hospitals has allowed for the secondary use of EMR data from multiple hospitals." [Teramoto K et al.

Health Information Exchange
Health information exchange (HIE) is the mobilization of healthcare information electronically across organizations within a region, community or hospital system. In practice the term HIE may also refer to the organization that facilitates the exchange. HIE provides the capability to electronically move clinical information among disparate health care information systems while maintaining the meaning of the information being exchanged. The goal of HIE is to facilitate access to and retrieval of clinical data to provide safer and more timely, efficient, effective, and equitable patient-centered care. HIE is also useful to public health authorities to assist in analyses of the health of the population. HIE systems facilitate the efforts of physicians and clinicians to meet high standards of patient care through electronic participation in a patient's continuity of care with multiple providers. Secondary health care provider benefits include reduced expenses associated with:
Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE)
CPOE is a process of electronic entry of medical practitioner instructions for the treatment of patients (particularly hospitalized patients) under his or her care. These orders are communicated over a computer network to the medical staff or to the departments (pharmacy, laboratory, or radiology) responsible for fulfilling the order. We publish for examples studies demonstrating (or questioning) that CPOE decreases delay in order completion, reduces errors related to handwriting or transcription, allows order entry at the point of care or off-site, provides error-checking for duplicate or incorrect doses or tests, and simplifies inventory and posting of charges.

Theme Issue: Medical Informatics and COVID-19
We have created a new theme issue to enable rapid publication and dissemination of research and perspectives related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the implications for Medical Informatics.
Industry perspectives: These outline the opinions and views of leaders in the field and offer a forum to share evolving ideas. We welcome in particular the discussion of experiences with new tools, methods, apps, devices, or experiences about the role of technology in medical informatics.

Standards and Interoperability
Consumer Health Informatics Innovations
Research Letters present new, early, or preliminary research findings. The text should use standard research headings of Introduction, Methods, Results, and Discussion and should be no longer than 750 words, with a maximum of 10 references and 2 tables or figures. The APF for Research Letters accepted after peer review is lower than the standard APF.
