BCS, along with IHRIM, CILIP and Socitm are creating an environment where informatics professionals can collaborate as a community of peers for the benefit of all, known as Fed-IP. Through a multi-disciplinary approach, we can develop rigorous and repeatable methods to transform health and care around the needs of the citizen. Along with our clinical informatics colleagues - all of us - have a role to play in making this happen for the benefit of society.
