What Clinical Informatics is Not

Sharing a post from a blog written by a CMIO who is also a great storyteller…

CMIO’s take: Health care is about using our best science, our best work-flow, our best teamwork. We use this information to heal individual patients and improve the health of our communities. We need great, up-to-date information to do that. Only by capturing, storing, analyzing data, creating new knowledge, and delivering that seamlessly to the provider at the bedside (or directly to the patient) can we grow, improve and evolve as a learning health system.
