About this book

This books provides content that arms clinicians with the core knowledge and competencies necessary to be effective informatics leaders in health care organizations. The content is drawn from the areas recognized by the American Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) as necessary to prepare physicians to become Board Certified in Clinical Informatics. Clinical informaticians transform health care by analyzing, designing, selecting, implementing, managing, and evaluating information and communication technologies (ICT) that enhance individual and population health outcomes, improve patient care processes, and strengthen the clinician-patient relationship. As the specialty grows, the content in this book covers areas useful to nurses, pharmacists, and information science graduate students in clinical/health informatics programs. These core competencies for clinical informatics are needed by all those who lead and manage ICT in health organizations, and there are likely to be future professional certifications that require the content in this text.​

About the authors

Dr. Finnell’s research activities focus on building emergency department systems for tracking visit data. I developed the emergency department’s first tracking system ten years ago, and am currently building the first integrated system with tracking, order entry, and documentation. My research activities have focused upon emergency patient’s utilization of emergency departments. My most recent project has incorporated INSPECT data (Indiana’s PMDP) into the electronic record. As Informatician, my role is to integrate the data warehouse with the clinical ED experience. Pulling the necessary data when the patient registers into the emergency department and providing the alerts/reminders to providers in a timely fashion. Dr. Dixon’s research focuses on developing and evaluating innovative technologies and processes for managing knowledge regarding individual patients and populations. His recent work has involved leveraging health information exchange (HIE) to enable secondary use of clinical and administrative data for improving public health surveillance, continuity of care for Veterans, the determination of disability, and clinical decision support. Before joining the faculty at Indiana University, Dr. Dixon managed research and development projects for Regenstrief and the Indiana Health Information Exchange. Dr. Dixon also developed health information applications and systems, including tools supporting the standard clinical vocabulary LOINC®, technology supporting the automated reporting of notifiable conditions to public health agencies, and tools for querying large clinical data repositories.
