Clinical pharmacists adept in informatics set out the basic information that fellow clinicians need in order to construct and use the same kind of electronic information systems that professionals in other medical fields do. The lion's share of attention goes to medication use process, which they cover in terms of assessment and ordering interventions; pharmacist initiation and assessment of medication interventions; medication dispensing and distribution; electronic systems for medication verification, administration, and documentation; and medication-related monitoring and outcomes measurement. Other topics are foundations of pharmacy informatics, computing and telecommunication fundamentals, health care data management and exchange, and the pharmacy informatics ecosystem.
