     infrastructure to manage and deliver
“Informatics is the scientific field that deals with
biomedical information, data and knowledge -
  their storage, retrieval and optimal use for
    problem-solving and decision-making.”

  “Knowledge Management is the collection
    of processes that govern the creation,
 dissemination, and utilization of knowledge”
                   IRT Goals
• Become a leader in the effective use of innovative
  information technology (IT) in biomedicine
• Integrate IT, informatics and knowledge
  management resources to support the biomedical
• Plan and implement IRT collaboratively
• Have IRT driven by a coherent strategic plan
• Support the Stanford Biomedical Community’s
  clinical, research and educational missions
                 Information Resources
                  and Technology (IRT)

• Senior Associate Dean position created March 2002

• Our mandate is to develop, collaboratively, an effective IT
  strategy for the Stanford Biomedical Community

   – Provide state-of-the-art IT infrastructure and services

   – Support access to and management of knowledge

   – Couple applied informatics with our needs

• Integration of MedIT, SUMMIT and Lane Library

• IRT strategic planning completed September 2002

      Collaborative IRT Planning
              is Critical

• The future of biomedicine is interdisciplinary
• There is a Stanford Biomedical Community
   – The Hospitals, School of Medicine, Clark Center,
• If translational research is to be successful,
  information must flow effectively within this
• Biomedical IRT planning and implementation must be
  a collaborative community process

Hospitals                School
          Major Strategic Themes
• Ubiquitous access to information

• Data privacy and security

• The Library as a Knowledge Management Center

• The Internet as a communications medium

• IRT as an innovative force in education

• Translational Informatics

• Enabling the translational research mission
Ubiquitous Access to Information

• The future of computing rests on a wireless
  “always on” network connection.
• Wireless networking is progressing rapidly
• Mobile computing devices are becoming
  smaller, cheaper, more powerful and better
• Biomedical workers are often nomadic
• Major transforming potential in the clinical,
  research and educational environments
            What IRT is Doing
• Implementing an enterprise-wide wireless

• Convened a joint School-University-Hospital
  secure wireless planning committee.

• Appointed an Associate Director of Wireless
  Applications Development

• Mandated secure wireless network standards

• Positioning all key information resources to be
  Information Privacy and Security

• New Federal and State regulations mandate
  significant changes in how we handle information
• Our ability and willingness to protect privacy and
  secure information will become critical
• Our clinical and translational research missions are
  at particular risk
• An issue in negotiating access to clinical data
            Internet Strategy
• The Web is our major point of contact with the World

• Internet strategy should support our strategic plan

• IRT Web design task force report

• The School needs a new Web site with:

   – Better navigational model

   – More consistent “branding” across the School

   – Tighter coordination with Hospital Web sites

   – Separation of public and private Web services
    1.1 Applications of Information
     Technology in Our Daily Life

• IT at Home
• Allows people to control household and other
  domestic appliances over the Internet Has become a
  necessity for many households
• Smart home technology Personal computer
Uses of personal computer
   Personal computer
                    IT at Home
• Home office
• Refers to a small computerized office setup at home
• Self-employed persons can work at home and communicate
  with others through the Internet.
• IT in Public Places
•   Provides information on nearby facilities in public places
•   Can be used for petty cash payments Example: Octopus
•   Information kiosk
•   Electronic Money
         IT in Public Places

• Internet access service
• It is provided in various public places. The public can
  obtain information from the Internet more
              IT in Business
• Office automation
• Office automation helps office workers improve
  working efficiency productivity, data security and
  communications with others
• Intranet
• A private and small-scale Internet of an
  organization Helps improve workflow and enables
  efficient collaboration and communication.
