HIMSS NCA Health Informatics Education, Career Development & Diversity: Careers During COVID
“Large health care systems have the onerous task of making their highest paid employees, their doctors and nurses, spend time documenting their care in electronic health records. To ensure these clinicians are well trained, and to accept their inevitable feedback on the systems, they rely upon a special work force: informatics professionals with backgrounds in both health care and the human computer interaction. In this session we will hear from informatics leaders in MHS, VHA, and other Federal Health Leaders, about their challenges promoting education and retaining a diverse group of such experts, especially given the special challenges of COVID.”
