Let's Talk Informatics

The Let’s Talk Informatics series has been developed to inform and excite people about clinical systems and information, which lead to positive patient outcomes.
The goals of the series are to:

· Identify what knowledge and skills health care providers will need to use information now and in the future.

· Prepare health care providers by introducing them to concepts and local experiences in Informatics.

· Acquire knowledge to remain current with new trends, terminology, studies, data and breaking news.

· Cooperate with a network of colleagues establishing connections and leaders that will provide assistance and advice for business issues, as well as for best-practice and knowledge sharing.
