What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is both a process and an outcome. As a process, accreditation seeks to determine the educational quality of a program or institution through the application of established standards, peer review, and professional judgment during multiple levels of review. As an outcome, the award of accreditation status provides assurances to the public that a program or institution has been found to meet such standards.

Health informatics is an interprofessional specialty that exists at the confluence of three major domains: health, information science and technology, and social and behavioral science. As with all other health professions, health informatics is the practice of using data, information, and knowledge for clinical care, scientific inquiry, decision making, and problem solving to improve the health, safety, and effectiveness of those working and being cared for within the system of health care delivery.
