this shold be in "bootynotes"
The Healthcare Informaticists among you looking to pick up a healthy £45-50k a year down in southwest England might want to have a shufti at this opportunity on totaljobs.com. Obviously, you'll need all the usual qualifications and experience required of a Healthcare Informaticist "working very closely with CfH", but be warned …
...but WTF is a "Healthcare Informaticist" ??? I've done the analysis (business AND system) for an application that covered international medical insurance pretty comprehensively and I have *NEVER* met a Healthcare Informaticist to date !!
Is it animal, vegetable or mineral ??
All this smacks of someone who is totally without any knowledge of the requirements making up specifications for yet another spectacular IT failure in the, already overburdened, health system.
A quick search revealed this:
"As the position of Clinical Informaticist is relatively new, there is no specific training required by a governing or licensing body. Rather each hospital or research facility sets the requirements within their research or Management Information Systems team. "
Maybe it's a job for the Hospital Administrator's or Chief Consultant's mistress and salary may depend on how friendly her posterior is.
