Clinical Informatics Fellowship

The Clinical Informatics Fellowship at HonorHealth is designed to train fellows in all aspects of clinical informatics including tools, concepts and methods. Fellows serve as consultants collaborating with multidisciplinary healthcare, IT and c-suite professionals to advance and improve clinical support systems, patient safety and quality in a wide range of settings. Fellows will learn to use the outcomes of their work to produce and disseminate scholarly work in alignment with HonorHealth’s vision to serve as the partner of choice as we transform healthcare for our communities.

The program is organized to ensure that fellows receive a well-rounded experience of the different aspects of the field and possess the ability to adapt to individualized learning plans that meet their personal educational goals. The foci are clinical practice improvement, social determinants of health, health equity, quality, safety, care transitions and addressing the opioid crisis.

Training and curriculum

The Clinical Informatics Fellowship Program is a unique program that will include faculty who are part of the HonorHealth Clinical Informatics Department and faculty from the Biomedical Informatics Program at Arizona State University's (ASU) College of Health Solutions.

The Clinical Informatics Department consists of an interdisciplinary team of nurses, physicians, medical assistants, surgery technicians and trainers. The ASU faculty will work closely with HonorHealth faculty to teach and administer the fellowship.

Fellows will also work closely on teams of IT analysts, data analysts, physicians, pharmacists, nurses, case managers and marketing personnel within the governance of our transformation steering committees and domains to streamline the use of technology in healthcare delivery.

Fellows will receive their master’s in health informatics from ASU and gain knowledge and skills in informatics to enable them to:

  • Detect disease early
  • Improve the patient hospital experience
  • Improve the precision of diagnosis
  • Improve the quality of patient health care and reduce its cost
  • Minimize hospital visits

Fellows will have the opportunity to rotate to a wide variety of healthcare settings such as hospitals, ambulatory care centers, FQHCs, health information exchanges, insurers, data warehouses and research centers. Each rotation and elective has been designed to expand their skills in informatics based on the unique characteristics of the rotations.
