A Special Issue on Public Health in Health Informatics is being organized in Healthcare. For detailed information about the journal, please refer to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/healthcare. Public health provides an extremely wide variety of problems that can be tackled using computational and machine learning techniques. Health informatics is a spectrum of multidisciplinary fields that includes study of the design, development, and application of computational techniques to improve healthcare. Disciplines involved combine medical fields with computing fields such as software engineering, data science, information technology, and behavior informatics. Health informatics research focuses on applications of artificial intelligence in healthcare for academic institutions. As COVID-19 continues to put serious pressure on healthcare systems worldwide, with more than 188 million confirmed cases and more than 4 million death cases to date and huge datasets collected, it will provide lots of research topics for healthcare informatics. This Special Issue is open to relevant subject areas of healthcare informatics. The keywords listed below provide an outline of some of the possible areas of interest.
