Ok, Now I am confused.... What is the Difference between Medical Informatics and Health Informatics? and Which is the better of the two?

Hi everyone!

So I have gone through more than 50 websites about schools, research options and stuff. I have also been getting lots of info from all you lovely people about why I should pursue Health Informatics and where to do it.

Now the problem is I don't know what the difference is between Health Informatics, Health Information Management, Medical Informatics, Biomedical Informatics ????

Could someone kindly clarify this for me, because I totally confused.

IMHO, health informatics related to all of healthcare systems in the view of informatics, bit different of medical informatics which focused on medics wares only
health information management, you know the different, this focused on how health informatics is managed
biomedical informatics, or says biomedics, is the branch of medical informatics which focused on medics hardwares only, CMIIW
