In the fall of 2015, TIGER Committee members began compiling interprofessional informatics definitions. The purpose of creating this document was to collaboratively define and document core health informatics terminology in an effort to provide context to the global TIGER interprofessional, interdisciplinary community for consideration when terms are referred to on the TIGER’s main landing page on HIMSS.org, in official documents, and within the TIGER Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Our intention is for this resource to serve as a helpful tool for those learning about informatics and informatics competencies. The 2.0 version of this document was published in August 2017.
As the field of informatics and competencies grow and change, so will the terms defined within this resource. With this in mind, an update will be provided to this document annually. Do you have a term, not currently listed, to share? Email TIGER with your feedback and proposed inclusions.
