{{Article of the week}}
'''[[Imaging informatics]]''' (also known as '''radiology informatics''' or '''medical imaging informatics''') involves the intersection between [[health informatics]] and [[bioinformatics]] that aims to improve the efficiency, accuracy, usability, and reliability of medical imaging services within the context of the healthcare environment. "Notably, medical imaging informatics addresses not only the images themselves, but encompasses the associated data to understand the context of the imaging study; to document observations; and to correlate and reach new conclusions about a disease and the course of a medical problem."
+
<div align="center">'''[[Main Page/Featured article of the week/2017|— See more archived featured articles —]]'''</div>
 
+
More specifically it is devoted to the study of how [[information]] about and contained within medical images is acquired, stored, exchanged, analyzed, and enhanced throughout the medical enterprise. Medical images must be in a standard, symbolic, and reproducible format for proper acquisition and storage. Computer-related transmission protocols like TCP/IP, HTTP, and [[DICOM]] as well as organized, sensical transaction diagrams are required for proper data exchange. And because of all those protocols and standards, software can be created and utilized to analyze, enhance, and even mine medical images for useful real-world healthcare data.

What does it mean to be "key" for the purpose of this ranking? The criterion for a vendor selling proprietary commercial laboratory informatics software being listed here: the vendor's LIMSwiki page must have a ''cited'' (from a publicly-available source) price list. Those with demonstration videos are given higher preference; items ranked by number of videos. Go [[:Category:Vendors|here]] for all listed vendors in the wiki.

[[File:Medical Software Logo, by Harry Gouvas.JPG|left|180px]]'''I wanted to highlight some of the projects''' we've worked on over the past few years. I feel like as the wiki grows, some of the tools buried within it tend to get lost. First, I'd like to again mention the [[LIMSWiki:Resources|LIMSwiki informatics resource portal]]. This project was dedicated to collating as many useful online scientific and health informatics-related materials and research tools as possible. It includes links to books, magazines, journals, blogs, organizations, special-interest groups, government entities, academic programs, conferences, trade shows, research tools, job boards, and a whole lot more related to [[laboratory informatics|laboratory]], [[health informatics|health]], and other types of [[informatics (academic field)|informatics]]. I can't stress enough how extensive we've tried to make this collection of resources.
+
 
+
We have other resources too that shouldn't go unnoticed:
+
 
+
* The [[Laboratory, Scientific, and Health Informatics Buyer's Guide]]: a guide to buying informatics systems, with a list of vendors who have public pricing
+
* [[LIMSWiki:LIMSforum and LIMS/LI forum posts]]: a collection of popular laboratory informatics discussions dating back to 2010
+
* The [[LIMS and laboratory informatics questionnaire]]: a request for information (RFI) document to help users in buying an informatics system
+
* [[Limspec]]: a related but different tool for building a personalized collection of cataloging requirements and vendor questions

'''We have a couple of brief updates''' to give you regarding the wiki. First, we've expanded the help section of the wiki by updating a few existing help pages and adding a few new ones. Additionally, we've added a new collection of [[Help:MediaWiki basics|MediaWiki training guides]] to 1. help users new to MediaWiki more rapidly make meaningful edits and 2. to further encourage new users to make wiki contributions. We hope you find the training guides and exercises useful. Second, we've [[Special:Version|upgraded to MediaWiki 1.21.2]], added new extensions, and will be moving the content to what will hopefully be a more rapid server. All these upgrades should translate to a more functional and inviting [[informatics]] wiki. Happy wiki-ing!

Revision as of 16:48, 4 December 2017


Welcome to LIMSwiki.org, the laboratory, health, and science informatics encyclopedia.
Users have contributed: 1,582 articles.

LIMSwiki is a collaborative wiki dedicated to the scientific community, featuring organized, documented, and up-to-date content regarding all aspects of laboratory informatics, bioinformatics, and health informatics. LIMSwiki also strives to maintain relevant knowledge about laboratory equipment as well as commercial and open-source software likely to be used in a laboratory setting. This also includes the vendors of such equipment and software.

Like any community wiki, the value and success of LIMSwiki is dependent upon the scientific community contributing their vast knowledge through the creation of relevant articles and editing of existing articles where knowledge is absent. If you wish to enrich the content of this wiki or have something of value to add, please request an account and get started.

"Big data as a driver for clinical decision support systems: A learning health systems perspective"

Big data technologies are nowadays providing health care with powerful instruments to gather and analyze large volumes of heterogeneous data collected for different purposes, including clinical care, administration, and research. This makes possible to design IT infrastructures that favor the implementation of the so-called “Learning Healthcare System Cycle,” where healthcare practice and research are part of a unique and synergistic process. In this paper we highlight how "big-data-enabled” integrated data collections may support clinical decision-making together with biomedical research. Two effective implementations are reported, concerning decision support in diabetes and in inherited arrhythmogenic diseases. (Full article...)

Relatively new to the wiki but previously unannounced is what will eventually become part of a series on the various industries and settings a laboratory can be found: The Laboratories of Our Lives: Labs, Labs Everywhere!. This guide may eventually change names and be integrated with more content. However, for now it acts as a solid introduction to the concept of how laboratories intersect our lives in ways we may not necessarily expect. The guide first sets a historical stage for the development of the laboratory, and it then offers a basic framework for looking at today's laboratories, whether by science, industry, or function. Then it provides a brief snapshot of 20 different sectors, listing lab examples, test types, equipment used, and how informatics may be applied in those laboratories, followed by a brief closing discussion. Hopefully the guide provides a more inspiring picture of how the laboratory intersects nearly every aspect of our lives.

New to the wiki today is the guide Past, Present, and Future of Cannabis Laboratory Testing and Regulation in the United States. This guide provides an in-depth discussion of the ever-changing status of laboratory testing and regulation of the cannabis plant in the United States. From the history, regulations, and standards to the chemical properties of cannabis and the laboratory methods used to define them, this Creative Commons-based work covers the social, political, and economic circumstances surrounding the controversial plant. It also looks at the equipment, software, and reporting of testing labs; provides future-looking trends and guidance both nationally and internationally; and offers a full directory of resources associated with cannabis testing and legislation. Enjoy!
