Medical Informatics (MI) is an emerging multidisciplinary study in academic fields. Also known as ‘Health Informatics,’ this study combines three different well-known fields; Information Systems (IS), Computer Science (CS), and Health Science (HS). MI is crucial because it could help in bridging the gap that is commonly found in conventional Healthcare services with the usage of Information Technology (IT). However, despite its vital role, the development of MI in Indonesia is still not satisfactory. Therefore, in this paper, the importance of MI as an academic discipline will be briefly discussed, followed by the description of MI development in Indonesia, and some suggestions for its future development.


Keywords –Informatics, Health Science, Indonesia, Information Systems, Medical Informatics.
