Medical informatics can be called the art and science of processing biomedical or health care information. It can include: clinical informatics, nursing informatics, imaging informatics, consumer health informatics, public health informatics, dental informatics, clinical research informatics, veterinary informatics, and pharmacy informatics. Conventionally, bioinformatics (proteomics, genomics and drug design) is not included in its general perview. After our initial experiments with the print version, we have now evolved to a peer reviewed, online-only and open access version. We intend to present a journal that is freely accessible to all readers with a quick turn around time for manuscripts. The Indian Journal of Medical Informatics will consider a wide range of submissions covering the theory, practice and outcomes of health care informatics with special emphasis on conditions similar to those prevailing in India.
