Clinical informatics is board-certifiable subspecialty that arose as a result of the perceived need for educated clinicians capable of interpreting the data and making informed decisions to influence the selection and implementation of different information systems and technologies, and at a higher level, drive policy changes. Surgeons have unique perspectives and workflow needs. These distinctions are why more surgeons need to be aware of the discipline of clinical informatics and why we need more surgeon informaticians. This is a session that will be beneficial to all surgeons, since technology and big data will be the drivers of healthcare for the next several years.
