Medical informatics - complex texts precisely translated by a native speaker

The translation agency Fasttranslator
Do you have any questions? We look forward to your email and your call!
Medical informatics is a newer scientific and application-oriented discipline that is situated at the intersections of information science, computer science, social sciences, behavioral science, and in health care, otherwise known as traditional medicine. Although it is still relatively new, the demand for professional translations in this area is rising at a continuous rate. Ours are done exclusively by native speakers who are well versed in the field of medical informatics. This is because complex texts require not only impeccable linguistic skills, but also the appropriate expertise. Our translators are therefore always specialized in at least one subject area. They have not only been raised speaking the target language you desire, but have mastered it even in regard to special cultural characteristics. In addition to that, they are able to contextually follow the medical informatics text to be translated, and are therefore able to translate it while accurately taking the technical vocabulary into account. We will gladly provide you with a personal, non-binding quote. Simply send us your text by email.

What is medical informatics?

Medical informatics deals with the optimization of various processes in the health care system such as the acquisition, storage, retrieval and use of resources, means, and methods that are necessary in varying medical fields. The resources needed for medical informatics include computers, medical rules and guidelines, formal medicinal nomenclature, and, of course, information and communication systems. Medical informatics is applied in the areas of health care and nursing, public health, pharmacy, therapy, and biomedical research.

The scope of activities for medical informatics experts

Medical informatics experts try to improve processes in the health care system through analysis and evaluation, as well as through the respective preparation and presentation of said processes. This way, the individual, personal feeling of a patient or employee should be improved in the same way as the doctor-patient relationship. The sights of a computer scientist mostly have to do with statistically observable and computable sizes, such as population health in Germany or in Europe, for example. Medical informatics experts use the knowledge they have gained in or about health care and combine it with their technical understanding of concepts and methods of medical informatics in order to:

  • Prepare information and knowledge and make it available for specialist physicians and patients
  • Describe, analyze, evaluate, and develop clinical processes
  • Develop, introduce, and, where appropriate, improve clinical systems that support critical decisions.

Medical computer scientists often work together with experienced physicians and other experts from the health care sector to be able to provide information technologies that are safe, efficient, effective, and timesaving, as well as patient-oriented and fair. Professional translation is becoming increasingly important over the course of this development. In order for you to use your precisely translated documents all over the world, we will support you with professionally translated texts from and into more than 150 languages. We will gladly advise you by telephone and by email.

Prospects, jobs, and training in medical informatics

Medical informatics is structured by the state in both science and in practice, due to the fact that most of Europe’s health care systems are organized and controlled by the government. The largest employer for medical informatics is probably, at least in Europe, the European Federation for Medical Informatics (EFMI). This organization was founded in 1976 in Copenhagen and has been gaining in importance ever since the successful establishment of IT media in our everyday lives.

The prospects for medical informatics are currently very good. In both the private and public sectors, the areas of application for and investments in medical informatics are expanding, since the industry has begun to emerge as effective and useful over the last decade in particular. It can therefore be assumed that medical informatics will remain a promising industry in the long run as well. Medical informatics can now be studied as a subject at many technical colleges and universities of applied sciences. Both prestigious schools for medicine and computer science are among these institutions.
