Communities of practice
Many HISA members go beyond branch networking, conferences and events to share their passion in a dedicated area of health informatics.
Communities of Practice provide a forum for interested members to deep dive on current topics – from cybersecurity to clinical informatics, health UX, nursing informatics and precision medicine.
Nursing Informatics Australia (NIA) is the pre-eminent group of nursing informaticians in Australia providing good reference point to learn about the developments in nursing informatics.
Clinical Informaticians assess the information needs of clinicians, managers and patients, and use these assessments to characterise, evaluate and improve clinical processes.
Precision Medicine is an emerging, evolving field whereby increasing amounts of different types of information are used to shape prevention, prediction, diagnosis and treatment at population, patient group and individual level. It is the way of the future.
