AMIA Launches First Informatics Workforce Survey

The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) launched an Informatics Workforce Survey today, marking the first time AMIA has reached out to widely survey informatics professionals and students in the multidisciplinary, interprofessional field. The survey will inventory the distinct knowledge and skills that informaticians bring to organizations and the range of roles they perform. It will clarify who informaticians are and what they do. The survey follows the development of proposed eligibility requirements for advanced health informatics certification published in the Journal of the America Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA).

“Informatics is a field that is distinct from health information management (HIM) and health information technology (HIT). We are seeking a very broad sample so all professionals and students working in informatics are invited to take the survey,” said Cynthia Gadd, PhD, MBA, MS, FACMI, the survey architect and executive director of AMIA’s Advanced Health Informatics Certification program.

AMIA has enlisted distribution support for the survey call from more than 10 health related professional membership organizations. The survey is open May 3 – 24.

From research to practice, informatics is a rapidly evolving profession with a broad reach in health and healthcare. AMIA seeks to develop a deeper understanding of the informatics workforce. The intent is to capture real world data on informatics roles, educational background, the tasks that are most important, as well as interests in certification and professional development. Collecting and analyzing the data is a necessary part of the foundational work supporting AMIA’s commitment to develop a range of professional recognition options for informaticians.

AMIA, the leading professional association for informatics professionals, is the center of action for 5,400 informatics professionals from more than 65 countries. As the voice of the nation’s top biomedical and health informatics professionals, AMIA and its members play a leading role in assessing the effect of health innovations on health policy, and advancing the field of informatics. AMIA actively supports five domains in informatics: translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, clinical informatics, consumer health informatics, and public health informatics.
