 Defining the Basis of
Health Informatics as a
      Discipline
   And so to the Knowledge
  Base and other interesting

The application of what we
know- our knowledge from
research from data and from
experience will have a bigger
impact on health and disease
than any drug or technology
likely to be introduced in the
next decade

               What next?
   To build a Mapping of the discipline
    of Health Informatics covering
    Blooms three domains.
   The triangulation, for expert opinion,
    document analysis and literature
    review, being provided in the three
    phases:


                An academic Institutional member of IMIA
   A literature analysis examining the
    emerging themes and high level descriptors
    using discourse analysis software and other
    methods
   A consensus workshop to explore the
    commonalities and differences between the
    Otley outputs with the document analysis
   Review of existing models and frameworks,
    particularly those being using Nationally
    and Internationally, prior to an IMIA
    International Consensus Conference to be
    organised by IMIA

• Otley outcomes are contextual
     “Describe stages of communication from
      source to recipient and what influences”
• Authors of Articles are asked to supply
  Keywords
     They do not use a taxonomy or thesaurus
     Often Countries or Organisations use words
      because they are “in” rather than that they
      have a specific meaning
       • E-Health, CfH, Patients Choice
• MESH heading are only medical
