Definitionsuse of, “Information Technology is the software, services, and supporting hardware infrastructure to manage and deliver information.” “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 mission • 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 resources – Couple applied informatics with our needs • Integration of MedIT, SUMMIT and Lane Library • IRT strategic planning completed September 2002 IRT Strategic Planning Group Carole Buffum -

The public can obtain information from the Internet more conveniently. 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.
