Jan Flowers

Hi All - My name is Jan Flowers. I’m a health informaticist, with training in psychology, bioethics, and health law. I love growing and strengthening communities of practice as a way to help not keep making the same wheel, to help people entering this field to grow their skill set, to gain different perspectives from people in the various roles in the field, and to collaborate on new innovations. I’ve often thought that data use of these systems is an often overlooked area for collaborations and knowledge sharing, so I’m excited to see this community emerge.
