What is Informatics?

Clinical informatics includes collecting, storing, retrieving, analyzing, and presenting data to achieve better health outcomes.

Veterinary clinical informatics is a rapidly evolving science that blends information technology, communications, social and behavioral science, and veterinary medicine, to improve the quality and safety of patient care.

Our mission is to guide and transform the veterinary profession in understanding, using and extending the practice of informatics.
