  • Identify informatics practice as a specialty that is essential to the delivery of high quality, and cost-effective health care
  • Are committed to their professional development and seek to actively engage in a community of like-minded professionals
  • Use informatics to improve the health of populations, communities, families and individuals by optimizing information management and communication (ANA, 2008*)
