An article on Health Informatics and Social informatics in the Journal of Medical Internet Research
Vasja Vehovar, PhD, a member of the Centre for Social Informatics, and Zdenek Smutný of the Prague University of Economics and Business published an article in the scientific Journal of Medical Internet Research. In the article, "On the Current Connection and Relation Between Health Informatics and Social Informatics", they distinguish the importance of social informatics and health informatics.
The authors argue "against the multiplication and inconsistent appearance of the term social informaticswhen newly used in health and medical sciences. A more explicit name for the area that uses health and social data to advance individual and population health might be helpful to overcome this issue; giving an identity to this new field would help it to be understood more precisely and bring greater separation. This labeling could be fruitful for further segmentation of HI, which is rapidly expanding."
