Hi fellow CMIOs, CNIOs, Clinical Informaticists, Clinical Informaticians, and other #workflow and #HealthIT friends,
Over the last 10 years, I've blogged a lot about different topics in applied Clinical Informatics, from change management to glossary development and workflow terminology management, to order set development. And yet, across the industry, it can sometimes be a challenge to find the other people who do this type of work, partly because:
- There are some people who 'do Clinical Informatics work', but are not labeled Clinical Informaticists / Clinical Informaticians in their job title. (Some are labeled CMIOs, CNIOs, Directors of Clinical Informatics, Clinical IT Analysts, Business Analysts, etc.)
- There are some people who do have a job title like 'Clinical Informaticist/Clinical Informatician', but focus their efforts mostly on a particular branch of Informatics, without clear support for the other branches (often due to resource limitations).
- Some 'Clinical Informatics' people focus their work for only their clinical specialty (e.g. 'Physician Informaticist', 'Nurse Informaticist', etc.)
