Abstract: Applied informaticians are usually evaluated on their contributions to their organizations and may have fewer incentives to disseminate their work. Academic informaticians, have considerable incentive to publish, but may not be connected to operational work. In this presentation, we will describe the Vanderbilt Clinical Informatics Center, which was developed to accelerate, enable and foster collaboration on informatics across Vanderbilt, and will outline lessons learned, best practices and high priority foci for organizations creating similar collaboratives.

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: Attendees will take away a roadmap for developing collaborations between academic and applied informaticians in their own organizations, and a list of high priority areas and best practices for enabling and accelerating informatics collaboration.
