Understanding HI Competencies

Introduction

Health Informaticians (HIs) are professionals that develop and/or deploy systems and methods based on information and communications technologies in support of health care, research, health system administration, and teaching. HIs require a well-developed knowledge base that encompasses the health system, computer science, and health information systems-related topics, as well as a set of intellectual and procedural skills, and preparatory experiences. The availability of skilled and knowledgeable HIs has become a critical issue in today's health system.
