Human Machine Interface, HMI - In complex systems, the human-machine interface is typically computerized. The term Humancomputer interface refers to this kind of systems. The engineering of the human-machine interfaces is by considering ergonomics (Human Factors). The corresponding disciplines are Human Factors Engineering (HFE) and Usability Engineering (UE), which is part of Systems Engineering. Tools used for incorporating the human factors in the interface design are developed based on knowledge of computer science, such as computer graphics, operating systems, and programming languages. Primary methods used in the interface design include prototyping and simulation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human-machine_interface Human Resources - A division of an organization concerned with personnel or the knowledge capital within an organization. Human to Machine interaction (H2M)/Human–computer Interaction (HCI) Involves the study, planning, and design of the interaction between people (users) and computers. It is often regarded as the intersection of computer science, behavioral sciences, design and several other fields of study. Hypnosis - A state that resembles sleep but in which you can hear and respond to questions or suggestions. Source: MerriamWebster ICD-10 Transition - Represents a major update to how health providers get paid - one that impacts almost every aspect of service delivery, billing, claims processing and reimbursement. ICD-10 will require testing changes in PM and EMRs, billing reporting packages, decision and analytical tools, as well as training coders and providers. Identification and spread of best practices - the process of identifying professional procedures that are accepted or prescribed as being correct or most effective. Identity - The condition of being the same with something described or asserted. Immunizations - Treatments (as by vaccination) of an organism for the purpose of making it immune to a particular pathogen Imprint -To fix indelibly or permanently (as on the memory). Increasing complexity of patient care - The various aspects of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans. Individual rights and responsibilities - A set of principles created by the National Health Council regarding a patients right to informed consent, understandable information, payment decisions, choice of providers, and provider incentives. Infection Prevention and Control - The discipline concerned with preventing nosocomial or healthcare-associated infection, a practical (rather than academic) sub-discipline of epidemiology. Influence without authority - The capacity to have an effect on the character, development, or behavior of someone or something without authority over the individual. Information Management - The collection and management of information from one or more sources and the distribution of that information to one or more audiences. Information Technology - The study or use of systems (esp. computers and telecommunications) for storing, retrieving, and sending information. Information Technology Serve (ITSL) - Health Information Technology (HIT) provides the framework for comprehensive management of health information and its secure exchange between consumers, providers, government and quality entities, and insurers. HIT offers tools for improving quality, safety, and efficiency of the healthcare delivery system. Intentional - Done on purpose; deliberate. Innovation - The application of better solutions that meet new requirements, inarticulate needs, or existing market needs. This is accomplished through more effective products, processes, services, technologies, or ideas that are readily available to markets, governments and society. Innovative Medical Devices - Such as physical, mechanical, or thermal means. Represents an innovative way of technical harmonization. ©Copyright North Central Texas InterLink, Inc.
