For this Final Presentation, you will build upon the work you finished in Weeks 2 through 5 and complete the preparation of an educational PowerPoint presentation on The Five Pillars of Health Informatics: consumer informatics, population informatics, clinical informatics, translational bioinformatics, and clinical research informatics. The presentation is meant to provide information on each of the pillars of health informatics to a health care organization’s administration so that they will have a better understanding of what each pillar is and how they are interrelated with a health care organization’s mission and goals.
Review and incorporate your instructor feedback on each of the components (clinical informatics, population informatics, consumer informatics, and translational bioinformatics) you developed in the previous weeks, and combine all the individual sections into your final Health Informatics Educational Presentation. The sections from the previous weeks are listed below for your convenience.

Role of Informatics in population
➢ Planning and System Design- Through informatics, a set of methods,
principles and tools are applied in information system design.
➢ Data collection and storage- Electronic data sources are the basis of the
data collected in a population (Vogel, 2014).
➢ Data modelling and analysis- Signal processing and detection, pattern
record, machine learning and statistical methods are applied in analysis
of population surveillance (Piltch, 2018).
➢ Communication- Informatics plays a role in the development of welldesigned communication systems to the public (Giustini, 2018).
Evidence-based Healthcare and
➢ The integration of Evidence-Based practice and Informatics has
improved healthcare delivery.
➢ Through informatics, the concerns of patients are able to reach to
their health care providers (Williams, 2019).
➢ Medical professionals take concerns into consideration and come
up with appropriate treatment plans.
➢ Health care providers improve experience of their care and
promote the health of populations.

The Human Genome Project
• Genomics refers to the study of the DNA
sequence of genes and their variations
among individuals (Chapter 30)
• The human genome project focuses on
studying human’s DNA, which is essential
for disease management
• It has led to new ways of carrying out
• However, the project faces the danger of
The Role of Genome Mapping in the Cause
and Prevention of One Disease
• Genome mapping refers to the use of genetic techniques to
construct maps that show the position of genes and other
features in a genome (Chapter 30)
• Genome mapping has been essential in disease management since
it promotes genetic sequencing
• Genetic sequencing helps to identify unknown sequences
obtained from patients
The Role of Genome Mapping in the Cause
and Prevention of One Disease Cont’d
• Through computational methods,
scientists are able to understand how
changes occur from one gene to another
and how the gene influences biological
• The scientists then collect clinical
(phenotypic) data that measures human
• They then correlate these biological and
phenotypic data sets, to identify important
How Bioinformatics Will Alter the Path of
• Bioinformatics entails applying computational
approaches to the analysis of massive data from
genomics, metabolomics and other fields
• Currently, bioinformatics is pushing for
personalized disease treatment characterized by
seamless integration of data from multiple levels
of investigation (Chen et al., 2013).
• Bioinformatics will alter the path of health
informatics by seamlessly integrating health
information components that traditionally worked
The Role of Precision Medicine and Its
• Precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment
• It is a disease treatment approach that takes into account
individual variability in genes, environment and lifestyle
• However, the approach requires organized funding to overcome
data transfer bottlenecks.
