What is Clinical Informatics?

Clinical informatics is the subspecialty of all medical specialties that transforms health care by analyzing, designing, implementing, and evaluating information and communication systems to improve patient care, enhance access to care, advance individual and population health outcomes, and strengthen the clinician-patient relationship (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education).
What I love about clinical informatics is that it provides the opportunity to make things better for both patients and providers. It improves health and health care delivery.
