Abstract: Since 2011 Clinical Informatics has been recognized as a medical subspecialty by the American Board of Medical Specialties. The Clinical Informatics Practice Pathway expires in 2022. Beginning in 2023, the certifying board exam will be available only for those physicians who have completed an ACGME-accredited fellowship in Clinical Informatics. There are now over 45 clinical informatics fellowship training programs accredited by the ACGME. We need these rising experts quickly to navigate and stabilize our journey into the turbulent seas surrounding many topic areas central to clinical informatics. For example, healthcare in the United States is beset with structural inequities. How might predictive algorithms address rather than potentially increase these inequities? Patient generated clinical data is growing. How might these expanding data sources facilitate and not befuddle the care process? Telemedicine has quickly ramped up in the context of COVID-19. How might we design systems better going forward to reach those unable to navigate the technical requirements? Consumer genomics testing with inherent privacy risks and many other concerns continues to grow. How can we guide and optimize use of these results and plan ahead for the rise of comprehensive chemical component testing, exposomics, and already growing epigenetic information? (What time is showing on your epigenetic clock?) Day to day EHR navigation flummoxes the most skilled among us contributing to clinician burnout. How can we do better with our EHR designs or extensions? Common data models show promise in managing a pandemic response. How can we do better with the next pandemic? How can we leverage the real-world evidence that we gather? When will a leaning health system arrive?
