3317.3 The Use of Consumer Health Informatics in Health Education Promotion and Disease Management

Monday, November 8, 2010: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Consumer health informatics is the branch of medical informatics that analyses consumers' needs for information; studies and implements methods of making information accessible to consumers; and models and integrates consumers' preferences into medical information systems. Consumer informatics incorporates a number of other disciplines, such as nursing informatics, public health, health promotion, health education, library science, and communication science, and is perhaps the most challenging and rapidly expanding field in medical informatics; it is paving the way for health care in the information age. This discussion will focus on this emerging field and its utilization in health promotion and management. Specifically, it will focus on Omaha, Nebraska, and their process in the acquisition, adoption and implementation of their electronic health record. Other discussions will look at the use of consumer health informatics and its relationship to health outcomes, including chronic illnesses and cancer amongst American Indians and Alaskan natives. Additionally, presenters will discuss lessons learned in utilizing HIT to help underserved populations as well as how consumer health informatics could positively impact patient outcomes and how it is utilized amongst Federal safety-net providers
Session Objectives: 1. Define the ways in which consumer health informatics promote health disease prevention and knowledge. 2. Evaluate the ways in which cities or States acquire, implement and adopt health information tehnolgy.
