Healthcare has now emerged out as a “health informatics” which comprises the use of information technology in healthcare business to streamline the business functioning. Health Informatics can be thought of a perfect blend of technology and healthcare, Says Paul Parmar – CEO of private equity firm Pegasus Blue Star.

According to the recent studies as conducted by the University of Illinois at Chicago’s (UIC), it has been proved that you can make better and informed decisions when everything you require is handy. It would be easy for you to directly access the patient records and avoid tiring paperwork with the Health IT tools.
