There are a number of clinical informaticians working in healthcare today. While some are formally board certified in clinical informatics (the majority via the grandfathering pathway of the ABPM), others engage in clinical informatics activities without formal training in the field.
A particular need that has been identified by this community is their desire to stay abreast of the recent developments in the field; the field of informatics is growing rapidly and professionals often find it difficult to stay current of all the advances that are constantly occurring in this domain. While there are a few notable educational activities in the field, such as the AMIA Annual Symposium, the focus of these conferences is typically on the research perspective, and it can be difficult for informaticians who predominantly engage in operational clinical informatics.
Additionally, while physicians who are board certified in CI are expected to complete MOC credits on a regular basis, there continues to be a paucity of relevant MOC activities, and this activity directly addresses the existing professional practice gap in the area of operational clinical informatics.
