Two Alere Analytics executives, Dr. Fauzia Khan, CMO, and Dr. Francis X. Campion, VP of Clinical Affairs, are among the first group of U.S. physicians to receive Board Certification in the subspecialty of Clinical Informatics. Dr. Campion is among an inaugural group of 400-plus physicians to pass the Board Certification exam administered by the American Board of Preventive Medicine (APBM) in October 2013. Dr. Khan received her certification from the American Board of Pathology (ABP) .

Clinical Informatics is the first medical subspecialty to be established in 20 years. Physicians in this field are at the forefront of combining technological innovations, population management theory, and clinical data and processes in order to design solutions that improve patient outcomes.

Becoming a Clinical Informaticist requires a current board certification in a clinical specialty (e.g. Surgery, Internal Medicine), current and valid state license to practice medicine, significant field work in Health IT during the past few years, and passing the board examination.

The American Board of Preventive Medicine describes the subspecialty on their website:

“Physicians who practice Clinical Informatics collaborate with other health care and information technology professionals to analyze, design, implement and evaluate information and communication systems that enhance individual and population health outcomes, improve patient care, and strengthen the clinician-patient relationship. Clinical Informaticians use their knowledge of patient care combined with their understanding of informatics concepts, methods, and tools to: assess information and knowledge needs of health care professionals and patients; characterize, evaluate, and refine clinical processes; develop, implement, and refine clinical decision support systems; and lead or participate in the procurement, customization, development, implementation, management, evaluation, and continuous improvement of clinical information systems.”

We congratulate Dr. Khan and Dr. Campion on this exciting achievement and look forward to seeing the contributions that the Clinical Informatics Specialist community will undoubtedly put forth in the fields of medicine and HealthIT.
