Biomedical informatics company with a difference.
BIDC is a holding company for our two diagnostic companies, bioZhena Corporation and bioPecus Corporation. BIDC is a niche medical informatics venture, basically utilizing the ovulographic™ and ovundographic™ data generated by the respective folliculogenesis-monitoring technologies, in the human and the animal female, respectively. Please see the bioZhena and bioPecus posts at http://hum-molgen.org/companies/profile.php3/2779 and http://hum-molgen.org/companies/profile.php3/3341, respectively.
BIDC is interested in hearing from people who are interested in biomedical informatics, with focus on female reproductive physiology and related biomedical fields. Relevant angle(s) of interest: engineering, medicine, science, financing.
Consider: in·for·mat·ics – noun (used with a singular verb) is the study of information processing; computer science. [Origin: trans. of Russ informátika (1966); see information, -ics]. Consider: Biocybernetics is the application of cybernetics to the biological science, comprised of biological disciplines that benefit from the application of cybernetics. Cybernetics was defined by Norbert Wiener, in his book of that title, as the study of control and communication in the animal and the machine. Concepts studied by cyberneticists include, but are not limited to: learning, cognition, adaption, social control, emergence, communication, efficiency, efficacy and interconnectivity. These concepts are studied by other subjects such as engineering and biology, but in cybernetics these are removed from the context of the individual organism or device.

Citing from http://wiki.bioinformatics.org/Medical_informatics:
The Medical Informatics FAQ ( http://www.faqs.org/faqs/medical-informatics-faq ) provides the following definition:
“Biomedical Informatics is an emerging discipline that has been defined as the study, invention, and implementation of structures and algorithms to improve communication, understanding and management of medical information.”
That FAQ also points out that medical informatics is more concerned with structures and algorithms for the manipulation of medical data, rather than with the data itself. “This suggests that one difference between bioinformatics and medical informatics as disciplines lies with their approaches to the data; there are bioinformaticians interested in the theory behind the manipulation of that data and there are bioinformatics scientists concerned with the data itself and its biological implications.”
We believe that, as the cited author of the FAQ holds, a good bioinformatics researcher should be interested in both of these aspects of the field. “Medical informatics, for practical reasons, is more likely to deal with data obtained at ‘grosser’ biological levels — that is information from super-cellular systems, right up to the population level — while most bioinformatics is concerned with information about cellular and biomolecular structures and systems.”
To wit: BIDC is focused on commercial introduction of ovulographic™ and ovundographic™data management tools in two disparate markets.
