Clinical Informaticists need to continually increase their competence and skills to build, modify, and create efficiencies within the EHR, as well as understand the implications of their decisions on clinicians and patient safety. They also need the ability to work effectively among the interprofessional team and be liaisons between information technology and clinical operations.
