Abstract: Health informatics has benefitted from the development of Info-Communications Technology (ICT) over the last fifty years. Advances in ICT in healthcare have now started to spur advances in Data Technology as hospital information systems, electronic health and medical records, mobile devices, social media and Internet Of Things (IOT) are making a substantial impact on the generation of data. It is timely for healthcare institutions to recognize data as a corporate asset and promote a data-driven culture within the institution. It is both strategic and timely for IMIA, as an international organization in health informatics, to take the lead to promote a data-driven culture in healthcare organizations. This can be achieved by expanding the terms of reference of its existing Working Group on Data Mining and Big Data Analysis to include (1) data analytics with special reference to healthcare, (2) big data tools and solutions, (3) bridging information technology and data technology and (4) data quality issues and challenges.
