This website is maintained by the UBC Medical Informatics Association, a student club constituted in March 2006 with the Alma Mater Society (AMS) of the University of British Columbia (UBC), in Vancouver, BC (Canada) by a group of enthusiastic UBC students interested in learning more about the application of current technologies to various aspects of health care and medicine.
What is Medical informatics?
Medical informatics is the discipline that studies and encourages the use of appropriate information to support clinical care, research, teaching and health services administration.
Interested in the future of medicine and health care? From patient medical records to telemedicine, e-health and personal digital assistants, the UBC Medical Informatics Association brings together all cutting-edge trends in medical informatics. The club provides opportunities for those interested in the future of medicine and health care to gain insight and valuable knowledge on the medical informatics field, both through our resources, and through the encouraged interactive participation of members in our activities.
Through the UBC Medical Informatics Association, we hope to promote the development and awareness of the emerging discipline of medical informatics to the UBC community and beyond.
“A technological revolution is underway reshaping the way that health care is organized and delivered; this revolution impacts the relationship between physicians and patients. Modern health care is unimaginable without the integration of information technology.”
