March 24 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm

Join North Carolina HIMSS Chapter March 24 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm in a virtual thought-leadership discussion about the transition to informatics. We’ll explore our common goal to use the knowledge and skills of all informatics professionals to help deliver the best care available to improve human health.

The transition to informatics has a common goal to use the knowledge and skills of all informatics professionals, regardless of specific knowledge and skills, to support the delivery of the best possible care available to improve human health.

Currently, the picture presented to those interested in becoming informatics professionals is confusing because of overlapping career paths and often the education programs that support them. In health care, the adoption of technologies has established an intersection of workforce roles—medicine and IT—which has increased the need for professionals who can thrive productively in that space.
