The capacity for digital health is influenced by the availability and deployment of health information professionals. These professionals have varied backgrounds ranging from computer to clinical and business sciences, may belong to one of several and diverse professional associations, and therefore are often invisible. We propose a framework for building workforce capacity to improve health services performance. This workshop will host a Knowledge Café, whereby faciliated conversations in small groups about workforce capacity building for future digital health will explore the tough questions in health informatics workforce development. These conversations will be thematically analysed by the workshop facilitators (authors) and reported in a peer reviewed journal.
