Introductory Lecture.
Teamwork and Collaboration (F9 Interprofessional Collaborative Practice)
Teamwork and Collaboration
Health informatics is based on a foundation of inter-collaborative and participatory practices, working
cross-functionally with team members from multiple disciplines toward common goals. The quality of
the dynamics of the team is imperative to the team’s integrity, effectiveness, success, or failure. The
CAHIIM competency domain F9 Interprofessional practice acknowledges the necessity of combining
knowledge, skills, and attitudes to function effectively (Valenta et al., 2018).
The competencies build upon each other and are interdependent …. Leadership, professionalism,
and collaboration. If a team is not effective or lacks results, a needs assessment often reveals a defect
in one (or more) of the three elements.
The Guffey (2018) textbook provides key elements for team decisions and dynamics as well as the
importance of listening skills.
Google search provides an extensive list of teamwork and collaboration skills- build and maintain
relationships, active listening, listen to and acknowledge feelings, concerns, opinions of others; support
group decisions, give and seek input, check for understanding, the action of the team working toward a
common goal, incorporate different skill sets, engaging others outside of the direct authority-cross unit,
cross-functional, cross-discipline; coordination, multi-tasking, delegation; team think vs. groupthink
Listening skills are required for a successful career (Guffey, 2018). Good listeners focus on the
content of the message facts, engage, identify key facts, avoid interrupting, ask questions, rephrase,
retain information, withhold judgment, and discern nuances (Guffey, 2018).
The communication medium (a form of communication) may influence the listener.
Face to face meetings and virtual meetings have commonalities:
-can demonstrate the speaker’s leadership, communication skills and problem-solving abilities
-have a purpose or goal, plan, attendees
-include multi-media i.e. slides, visuals, agenda
-involve moderation, distractions, noise (Guffey, 2018)
Virtual meetings, although convenient include the following idiosyncrasies that affect the listener versus
face to face meetings:
-lack ability to read non-verbal body language, group energy, eye contact, and expressions
-need extra ground rules set at the beginning to manage the discussion, asking questions, distractions
-require extra instruction for technology, time zones, language, the distraction of other technologies,
phones, etc.
-may require security and privacy rules
-need a sense of camaraderie or interaction to set the tone of teamwork (Guffey, 2018)
– audience tends to multi-task and misses content
Team/Group Decisions
Team or group decisions are usually better than individual decisions due to the following characteristics
of teams/groups:
-multiple skillsets, diverse perspectives
-improved efficiency, brainstorming, analysis of blind spots
-willingness to solve a problem, routines, shared objectives
-information sharing, defined rules, consensus-building (Guffey, 2018)
The culture of groupthink can also skew the quality, authenticity, and outcomes caused by the following:
-avoidance of conflict
-consensus-based on conflict avoidance or pressure to conform
-biased data, blind spots avoiding risks
-lack of contingency plans
-over tolerance of a dominant team member
-impulsive decisions, time pressure, lack of diversity
-lack of subject matter expertise
-ignoring team dynamics, lack of participation (Guffey, 2018)
Decisions in health care have a significant impact on the patients. Health informaticians support health
care, teams/groups, to deliver optimal patient care and improve outcomes. The role is dynamic and
varies, dependent on the role, the setting, the patient cohort, the goals, and the environment (Holden,
et al. 2018).
Initial Post and Group Discussions
The initial post and discussion, just like a meeting, provide the opportunity to “demonstrate leadership,
communication skills, and problem-solving skills” (Guffey, 2018, p. 51). Remember to provide examples.
Examples always help to reinforce and strengthen the validity of a concept. Discussions are similar to a
discussion in a face-to-face class, except the message is dependent on the written word. As a result, pay
more attention to your choice of words, tone, and persuasion. Is your discussion backed up by facts and
references?
Missing in an online discussion is the advantage of observing eye contact or body language, reading the
tone of the room, or verbally verifying if your premise makes sense to the listener.
Research and use of all resources are important, similar to presenting data and arguments to a group
hiring a health informatician. A health informatician is a valuable resource to have on the team. What
evidence you offer and how you present it may make the difference between credibility and trust.
Please post any questions to the bulletin board.

Discovery Questions
Discovery Question 1- Listening Skills – Based on the readings and research, describe 3 of the most
important elements of listening skills and how they are used and demonstrated. Consider audience
composition and how communication delivery medium influences these skills, e.g. face to face vs virtual
delivery; personal vs. professional communication, and patient vs professional audience. Give examples.
Include in-text citations and a reference list.
Discovery Question 2- Team/Group Decisions – Based on the readings and research describe 2
positive elements and 2 negative elements of team/group decisions and behaviors (see readings).
