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.

2016 Special Iss "Optimization, Data Mining, and Statistical Management of Bio-data in Medical Industry Informatization"
“Informatization refers to the extent by which a geographical area, an economy or a society is becoming information-based” (Wikipedia)The Journal of Medical Internet Research – Medical Informatics invites authors to submit articles on the applications of multiobjective optimization and big data technology in the knowledge discovery, data integration and intelligent decision-making for advances in medical and healthcare management, as well as medical industry informatization.Nowadays, informatization is the inevitable development trend in medical industry. In the past few decades, the computing hardware and software has continued to grow exponentially, but there still are some challenging problems for providing better healthcare services. Breakthroughs in operational research and arrival of the era of big data has helped us to find better operational strategies in hospitals that can affect patients’ health more accurately, towards higher quality and personalized services for patients.Medical industry informatization entails creation and administration of the overall healthcare system for efficient delivery of medical services and cost-effective operation of the healthcare organizations. This requires analytical problem-solving and decision-making to balance effective healthcare delivery and the cost-efficient performance of the hospital, by cooperative working of medical, nursing, administrative, and hospital operational services to function as a whole. It also includes development of procedures for state-of-the art medical treatments, quality care of patients, quality assurance characterization and assessment, and community distributed health planning. Budget planning and allocation is an important component of hospital operations management, to ensure cost-effective operations of all the hospital departments as well as develop and expand programs and services for scientific research and preventive medicine. This constitutes the focus of this Special Issue on the current state-of-the-art advances in medical informatization. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:* The function of medical information management systems, including resources allocation, personnel assignment and cost containment;* Mobile applications to provide online medical consultants, including diagnosis, therapy planning, and treatment follow-ups;* Big data techniques in the medical domain, such as collection, analysis and processing of widely used medical data through wearable devices;* Machine learning, processing of widely used bio-data through evolutionary based algorithms;Advanced techniques for optimization in the medical domain using metaheuristic optimization algorithms and hybridization;* Multiple criteria decision making in hospital management.
