Clinical informatics professionals must remain current with rapid changes in technology, expectations, payment methods, organizational management, and regulations. Fundamental principles in medicine, psychology, computer science, informatics, and economics will serve as a vital foundation; the application of these principles through people, organizations, data, processes, and technologies will change with rapidity. Clinical informatics professionals must remain current to understand and implement meaningful next steps as their organizations evolve. This currency can only be obtained through professional engagement with the broader informatics community and through study of new findings and innovations. Like clinical medicine and many other fields, the body of literature in informatics is growing far too rapidly to remain current in every professional interest. To face the challenges ahead, informatics professionals must employ a range of technologies and resources to collaborate and learn across the many applicable disciplines.
