Biomedical Informatics

Biomedical informatics deals with science of information as applied to or studied in the context of biomedicine. Defining the object of study of informatics as data plus meaning clearly distinguishes the field from related fields, such as biostatistics, biomedicine and computer science which have different objects of study. The emphasis on data plus meaning also suggests that a biomedical informatics problem tends to be difficult when they deal with concepts like computational and formal definitions. In other words, Biomedical Informatics is the field that is concerned with the maximum use of information, usually aided by the use of technology and people to improve individual health, health care, public health, and biomedical research.

Biomedical Engineering is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes (e.g. diagnostic or therapeutic). This field seeks to close the gap between engineering and medicine: It combines the design and problem solving skills of engineering with medical and biological sciences to advance health care treatment, including diagnosis, monitoring, and therapy.
