what is the difference between operational and informatics use of health care datbase
Hi. Thanks for your question!

Operational use of a health care database is for day-to-day use, allowing the health care service to function normally. Examples might include entering patient data for billing; scheduling resources such as operating theaters and MRI machines; recording prescriptions, medications, dosages, and administration time; recording attendance or no-show status at outpatient appointments; and looking up previous interventions for diagnostic support.

Informatics use of a health care database uses aggregated information to drive larger decision-making processes. Examples might include running reports about key performance indicators such as average length of stay and hospital-acquired infection; determining efficacy of different treatment types; determining relative costs borne by different departments; forecasting staffing needs or bed shortages; and determining which resources might be underutilized and therefore should be downscaled.

Kind regards,
