"We have the most inefficient health care system imaginable. We're still using paper. Nurses can't read the prescriptions that doctors have written out. Why wouldn't we want to put that on an electronic medical record that will reduce error rates, reduce our long-term costs of health care, and create jobs right now?" - US President Barack Obama, February 9, 2009

Medical Informatics also known as Health informatics (Health Information Technology HIT) is a scientific field or discipline that deals with all kinds of medical information, knowledge and data for the storage, retrieval and acquisition and also optimal use for decision making and problem solving. Further, it comprises the theoretical and practical aspects of information processing and communication, based on knowledge and experience derived from processes in medicine and health care." It is an intrinsically interdisciplinary field, with a highly applied focus, but it also addresses a number of fundamental research problems as well as planning and policy issues. Health care institutions are beginning to make large-scale commitments to information systems and to services that will affect every aspect of their organization's function. Academic units of medical informatics are being established at a number of medical schools, medical informatics professionals are being sought to serve on faculties and hospital staffs, and medical informatics is emerging as a distinct academic entity. "

Health information technology has achieved a new prominence in the United States (US) with its inclusion in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, the federal economic stimulus package signed into law by President Barack Obama on February 17, 2009. The promise of HIT for improving quality and safety of health care while reducing costs has caught the eye of policy makers and other leaders in health care.
