Clinical informaticians transform health care by analyzing, designing, implementing, and evaluating information and communication systems that enhance individual and population health outcomes, improve patient care, and strengthen the clinician-patient relationship. Clinical informaticians are at the intersection of clinical processes and business processes and communication & information technology Clinical informatics is applied -- interventional Clinical Processes Information Technology Business Processes
