which ought to be similar to Health informatics??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:01, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

In French we say informatique appliquée à la gestion. Business Informatics seems the right english words. In Germany these terms seems also used in [1]one of the Germany online university. There is a page in the en.wikipedia on master of Business Informatics.

The name thus seems right, but we should detail the content.

There are also concerns that Business Informatics seems to be attempting to subsume Organisational Informatics. There are roughly four layers of informatics, each concerned with smaller groups. The first is social informatics - studying the information flow across a society. Lower than society is Organisational Informatics - involving the information flow across organisations whether they be businesses, not-for-profit companies or government departments. Below this level is business intelligence, which might also be considered the informatics of teams, and finally there's the informatics of individuals.

Business informatics is informatics that is (perceived) as relevant and useful to business. Organisational informatics is a larger area, has wider impact, and might be drawn out of Organisational Informatics. Just as Medical Informatics is the study of information as useful to medicine, and legal informatics the study of information as relevant to the law, business informatics is not a replacement or synonym for organisational informatics.
