what is informatics
What is Informatics?
  • Biomedical informatics (BMI) is the interdisciplinary field that studies and pursues the effective uses of biomedical data, information, and knowledge for scientific inquiry, problem solving, and decision making, motivated by efforts to improve human health. (www.amia.org)
  • Health informatics is the science that underlies the academic investigation and practical application of computing and communications technology to healthcare, health education and biomedical research. (http://www.medicine.virginia.edu)
what is informatics to me
What is Informatics – to me?
  • Clinical informatics is the field where we attempt to apply principles of information technology, human interface and usability, psychology, change management to the intersection between providers, IT systems and patients in the process of care delivery…
  • …with the aim of reducing cost, improving efficiency and most importantly clinical outcomes.

Major focus on the subject domain (in this case, biomedicine) and the unique challenges that arise at the intersection of people, information, and technology





origins of the cmio role
Origins of the CMIO role
  • Originally a physician champion role given to a likeable physician to bring along the not so likeable physicians in an IT implementation
  • Formal CMIO titles started becoming common in 2002 but probably dates back to 1992
  • Tremendous growth and evolution post the HITECH act of2008
  • According to Simplyhired.com, positions for clinical informatics jobs increased 91% from March 2008 to September 2009.

Basic reporting structures
  • - Initially the CMIO role reported to the CIO
  • Significant trend to now report to the CMO ( reflects in the change of mindset that the CMIO is an operational/clinical executive not an IT executive per se)
  • In 2014 39% reported to CMO and CIO each, only 4% wanted to report to CIO
  • Dual reporting relationships are common
  • Few report directly to CEO
