AMIA 2011 Annual Symposium Washington, DC

October 22-26 at the Washington Hilton

AMIA 2011 Scientific Program Committee Chair

The AMIA Annual Symposium is the primary forum for the presentation of research and development related to the structure and management of data, and the design, implementation and evaluation of information systems in the field of biomedical and health informatics. I don’t remember during my 26 years of attending the Annual Symposium when the interest in Biomedical and Health Informatics has been greater than now. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s Meaningful Use has stimulated the need for and access to health information technology (HIT). The ultimate purpose of Meaningful Use is to use HIT to improve patient care, which has always been a goal of AMIA. Many of us in the AMIA family will be involved with Meaningful Use. It is critical that we “team-up” and share our experiences to answer the remaining implementation and use questions on what is working and where we are seeing problems and barriers so we can use the vast knowledge base held by AMIA members to make sure we see and can measure the benefits of HIT and prevent the potential unintended consequences.
