First Workshop is being organized at : MUHS, Pune center, 3rd floor, ESIS Building, Aundh, Pune 411007
On On 8th and 9th May 2012
Maharashtra University of Health Sciences – Doctors are not trained to understand processes in software development. Software professionals do not understand complexities in medical management. There is need of interfaces, which facilitate interaction between medical professionals and software professionals. Conducting training programs in medical informatics will fulfill this need. In USA 150 such training programs are conducted every year with a goal to train 10000 people by 2010. US organizations are working towards training 20000 people all over the world by 2020. India does not have many training programs in this field. Hence, Maharashtra University of Health Sciences, is conducting introductory workshops to increase awareness regarding this field.
India has highly trained medical manpower which works in state of the art healthcare facilities treating patients coming for medical tourism. We also have internationally acclaimed IT manpower working for fortune 500 companies. However India is lagging far behind in medical research, in spite of having 16% worlds population. The hospital management systems available in many hospitals fail to support clinicians for accumulating clinical information and its analysis. The workshops will help participants to understand how to handle medical information so that it is useful for statistical analysis and medical research.
Various examples of possibilities of use of information technology in improving healthcare are provided in the workshop. We will introduce various application areas of healthcare informatics. The workshop will be useful for all faculty members including Lecturers, Readers, Associate professors and Professors.
Introductory workshop is about concepts and not about programming, so participants do not need to know programming. Participants will be selected on how they have used information technology in their research
- a. To increase awareness regarding the field of biomedical informatics
- b. To enable participants, in understanding complexities in medical information.
- c. To impart knowledge for database design using controlled terminology.
- d. To increase use of internet in medical research and for alerts in day to day practice.
- e. To highlight various application areas of medical informatics.
- f. To facilitate interdisciplinary interaction amongst various participants.
At the end of workshop participants will
- a. become interested in working in the field of medical informatics
- b. be able to understand problems faced by healthcare and software professionals
- c. be able to work on small interdisciplinary project.
Fees: Rs.2500/- which includes resource material, tea, breakfast and lunch on both days.
