The Emerging Informationist Specialty: A Systematic Review of the Literature (Report)

INTRODUCTION It has been seven years since Davidoff and Florance [1] proposed a new professional, an informationist with responsibility for providing highly specialized information services in the clinical setting. Davidoff and Florance characterized these new professionals as knowledge workers formally trained in both the information and clinical sciences so they can retrieve, synthesize, and present medical information routinely for clinical health care teams. They called for a national program to credential these professionals and advocated for their financial support to come directly from clinical funds.
