Bioinformatics refers to the use of a wide variety of computational tools that work to expand the research and application capabilities of biological, medical, behavioral or health data. The functionalities of these computational tools include acquisition, storage, organization, archival, analysis and visualization of the various types of data.
Clinical informatics is the study of information technology and how it can develop further the practice of an information-based approach to healthcare delivery. Delivery of healthcare data must be structured in a certain way in order for it to be effectively retrieved and used in the field.
