Nice to meet you all!
I am a Medical Coding student at Flathead Valley Community College. I joined this forum as an assignment for my Records Management class.
I am studying medical informatics master. I graduated from computer education and instructional technology department, but I decided to continue my education with medical informatics. Currently, I am studying on mobile health applications, specifically for patient with diabetes.
I am looking to learn about what is going on with the health informatics in other countries and educational opportunities of health informatics. That's why I've registered for this forum.
I wish you all a healthy life.
I am a M.B.Ch.B Medical Doctor from Nigeria. I am very interrested in health informatics and hope to start up an EMR vendor in Nigeria, with its over 2000 hospitals and clinics..I hope my country is ready, as she can't boast of constant power suply and there is low computer literacy. However, I am tired of the poor flow of patient care, the many human errors, the redundancy and the lack of records. So I want to know as much as I need to get a team together to bring automation to healthcare in Nigeria. If you want to help, join me!

I moved to New Zealand to do my PhD at the University of Auckland last year. I'm interested in eHealth innovations and the change they bring about in the health systems. My BSc is in Biomedical engineering and I took my Master in IT systems, where I became interested in eHealth and health informatics.

I am also interested in doing an online Phd. Can someone tell me of the openings that there are in this area, if there are any scholarships for the same and how I can go about getting one?
Hello, it’s nice to meet everybody on http://www.healthinformaticsforum.com
My name is Jason and I am a student attending the University of Victoria in Health Information Science. With the growing field of Health Informatics I was inclined in searching for an online community in relations for my future career. As for reference, I am always interested in gaining new knowledge and with the help of your expertise in health informatics; I believe I found the right community.
Best wishes and Thanks for your time,
I am currently a student working towards my Bachelor of Science in Health Information Technology at the University of Victoria, B.C, Canada. I have taken two years of general science and one year of Health Informatics, and I am currently taking some summer classes.
As someone recently introduced to this area of study, does anyone have any advice or words of wisdom?
I also was wondering if anyone could tell me about the different directions I could go in terms of employment? I would prefer something with some biology/science involved.
My name is Stan, and I am currently in school for a second degree in Health Informatics and Computer Science at University of Victoria. My first degree was in biochemistry, I decided to change into Hinf field, as I feel the job opportunities were more abundant and more enjoyable for me. I look forward to learning more about the field and meeting everyone on here!
I am currently working on my BSc in Health Informatics at The University of Victoria, in British Columbia, Canada. I am doing my first of 3 4-month coop positions in the Clinical Informatics office at the BC Women's and Children's Hospital.
