Health informatics, or medical informatics, has been defined as the intersection of information science, computer science, and health care. It deals with the resources, devices, and methods required to optimize the acquisition, storage, retrieval, and use of information in health and biomedicine through better data management, analysis, and transmission.

Accurate and up-to-date information is required to coordinate the many organizations and people involved in many types of medical services including patient care, patient records, blood supplies and biosurveillance.

As experts in the field of knowledge discovery, information analysis, decision support, business intelligence, supply chain management and system-of-systems technologies, KBSI is providing medical practitioners with the ability to quickly assess the medical information and make time-sensitive medical decisions as well as more far reaching decisions involving, for example, the implementation of new information technology-based healthcare solutions.  KBSI's health informatics research and technologies can also help healthcare industry professionals to effectively innovate and improve their medical services and administration forecasting staff, equipment, facility, medication, and consumables demand based on patient profiles, diagnostic trends, changing demographics, and other factors.

KBSI has also applied its work in knowledge discovery, forecasting, and pattern discovery to biosurveillance technology that monitors medical data for signs of a biological outbreak, and technology that tracks and analyzes, using predictive logistics and forecasting, the inventory and supply chain status of blood and blood products, providing a graphical dashboard for the management of the blood chain. This technology has been used in managing inventory at the regional level for over 700 hospitals and clinics and, using agent-based alerts and notifications, to anticipate demand and provide quicker responses to changing needs and conditions.
