What is Informatics?

Biomedical informatics (BMI) is the interdisciplinary, scientific field that studies and pursues the effective uses of biomedical data, information, and knowledge for scientific inquiry, problem solving and decision making, motivated by efforts to improve human health.


AMIA publishes a number of outreach materials for its membership and for external communities to provide news and views on a wide span of topics related to informatics.
