14 Clinical: Refers to the practice of medicine in which physicians assess patients (in person or virtually) or populations in order to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease using their expert judgment. It also refers to physicians who contribute to the care of patients by providing clinical decision support and information systems, laboratory, imaging, or related studies." "

17 Interprofessional Certification Question: What options exist for certification of professionals who are not eligible for the clinical informatics medical subspecialty? K Fickenscher! Answer: At its June 2011 meeting, the AMIA Academic Forum decided to create an Advanced Interprofessional Informatics Certification (AIIC) Task Force whose charge is to explore the issue of an alternate pathway for certification of clinical and public health informatics professionals in parallel with the subspecialty certification of physicians. The AIIC Task Force has delivered a recommendation to the AMIA Board of Directors to pursue the establishment of an Advanced Interprofessional Informatics Certification and there is a now a Roles and Functions Task Force working on a white paper.

18 Implications of These Developments Remarkable change in attitude and acceptance of CI as a professional field Results in greater visibility and validation of CI Makes careers in CI more attractive to physicians who are choosing their specialty and subspecialty options Strengthens the core discipline and its applied implications

19 Thank You!"
