Poor information and defective IT can harm patients as surely as botched surgery or wrongly administered drugs. So why aren’t informatics staff regulated like nurses and doctors? Join the debate

I believe that informatics staff are regulated under the law of informatics. Examples of the statutory "regulation" that I have in mind include: a) data protection of personal information; b) prevention of staff who might slander and/or libel patients; c) searches of staff under criminal record bureau data.

Having attended yesterday's excellent launch event for the CCIO Network as a representatve of UKCHIP which is a supporter of the whole CCIO campaign, I did come away with a question which I heard echoed by other health informaticians.

So many policies, reports and studies have health informatics' implications

Created by Jean Roberts 111 weeks ago
Increasingly formal documents, be they DH, European Commission, Nuffield, Kings Fund etc have implications for information handling and a need (usually under-stated) for professional staff to minimise risk and to deliver the necessary informatics to make it happen.
