My Informatics Story



hi I'm Tom in Seattle and I'm going to tell you my informatics story when I first finished residency I worked in a very busy clinic and inner-city Denver Colorado we work long days I thought we did a really good job with our patients but I had the sense that we really didn't have the big picture for the people we were serving we didn't know who was getting what care where we needed to do better on preventative care we didn't understand what we weren't doing as well as we might so about this time I saw an article in the New England Journal by octa Barnett on computer based record systems and I thought mm-hmm that might be a way that we could understand the big picture so I looked into this area I found a fellowship in what was then called medical information science not help informatics and pursued that fellowship and I've been in the field ever since
