The purpose of the Academy Health Informatics Work Group is to serve as a networking and collaboration hub for the informatics community.

The healthcare industry continues to face constant transformations brought about by swift changes in technology and informatics solutions, healthcare regulations, reimbursement requirements, and the development and adoption of newer systems and processes (patient-driven data, data analytics, integrated applications to clinical information systems, increasing reliance on revenue cycle, and widespread changes in organizational structures and workflows). The field of informatics has expanded over the last decade and has now become even more interprofessional. The combination of the surge in informatics solution changes and the involvement of various disciplines to the field make informatics even more relevant and remarkable as it drives the evolution of healthcare delivery.

The New York Academy of Medicine is in a unique position to serve as the conduit and point organization in assisting informaticists face these challenges in their respective healthcare organizations. There needs to be an organization that will serve as the focal linkage among informatics practitioners where they can share, coalesce, and support each other in addressing concerns and issues related to the surge in various branded informatics solutions and integrating these into safe and efficient real time patient care scenarios.
