Apart from the shortage of health informaticians in various organizations, there is also a significant challenge in investing in IT related to informatics in the area where I work. This includes limited access to education in health informatics.
Many healthcare facilities do not prioritize having health informaticians in their organizations because they can still provide patient services through paper-based management, without the need to invest in such systems. They do not see the importance of comprehensive data management.
The creation and development of health informaticians are limited due to the scarcity of resources and government policies that do not prioritize the development of medical technology. This makes it difficult to produce and develop personnel, leading to shortages.
All of these factors contribute to a lack of awareness about the importance of health informatics, and there is much room for improvement.
