The Embedding Informatics in Clinical Education (eICE) team have launched a website to help raise awareness of health informatics for clinical staff with little or no prior knowledge.

The eICE team have been working with subject matter experts in the NHS to devise a set of e-learning modules based on the content of Learning to Manage Health Information (LtMHI) (DH 2012).

LtMHI sets out seven informatics themes that are considered to be at the core of what clinical staff need to be aware of. These themes are:

  • Protection of individuals and organisations
  • Data, information & knowledge
  • Communications & information transfer
  • Health & care records
  • The language of health: Clinical coding & terminology
  • Clinical systems and applications
  • eHealth: the future direction of healthcare

A set of learning modules have been designed that require no prior knowledge or understanding that can be completed in 20 - 30 minute sessions.

The modules, which are endorsed by a number of professional bodies are:

  • Clinical information systems
  • ehealth: the future direction of healthcare
  • The language of health: Clinical coding & terminology
  • Introduction to clinical governance (meets mandatory requirements for NHS staff)
  • The importance of good record keeping
  • Records management

The modules aim to raise awareness of informatics and how it is an essential component of daily practice without expecting people to be experts in the field.

The modules will be a useful tool for clinical leaders wishing to raise the informatics knowledge and understanding of their teams.

The eICE website is hosted by the Clinical Leaders Network. All the modules are free to access and certificates can be printed on successful completion of each module following an assessment.

The modules will also be available soon to download as mobile Apps.

Organisations may wish to register as an organisation and take advantage of the free progress-tracker reporting facility.
