Abstract

There are likely to be many opportunities and challenges for health informatics and health informatics higher education in China following acceptance as a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO). The purpose of the article is to review the current status and consider future directions for health informatics and health informatics higher education in China. Today, China’s educators are viewing education in global terms. China is opening its markets and especially its educational system to the world. Developed countries should take this opportunity to export their advanced health ICT technology, management expertise and existing health information systems to China, and in particular to China’s health informatics educational market.
