Completing the Evidence Cycle: Reimagining the Research-Practice Relationship in a Post-Meaningful Use Era
Policy Invitational Steering Committee Chair: Peter Embi, M.D., M.S. FACMI
For the last decade, the AMIA Policy Invitational has served as a unique platform to inform legislative, regulatory, and policy development. During the 2016 AMIA Policy Invitational (API2016) participants will participate with colleagues in focused and thought-provoking discussions that will help articulate recommendations for the new Administration and 115th Congress.
The theme of this year’s Invitational looks at the possibilities and the pitfalls of reaching near universal adoption of EHRs in US healthcare, and how this paradigm requires a re-examination of how clinical practice interacts with clinical research and vice versa. API2016 will feature three keynote speakers, including:
Dr. Robert M. Califf, Commission of the Food & Drug administration
Dr. Patricia Flatley Brennan, Director of the National Library of Medicine
Dr. Andrew B. Bindman, Director of the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality
The increasing overlap between clinical research and practice necessitates a broad discussion of how we can leverage point-of-care activities and systems to improve clinical research, accelerate biomedical discovery and improve the health of individuals and populations.
Attendees will participate in multi-stakeholder breakout sessions where they will engage with their peers in facilitated discussions meant to develop concrete, actionable recommendations on the topics of "Nodes: Evidence Generation at the Local Level," "Networks: Clinical Research Across Organizations," and "Sustainability: Maintaining a National Research Ecosystem."
Given the ascendance of a new Administration and 115th Congress in 2017, recommendations developed through API2016 will develop solutions-oriented ideas to the fast-moving legislative and regulatory environment – in Washington, DC and beyond.
As a supplement to API2016, AMIA is partnering with the newly established North American Center for the Study of Ethics and Health Information Technology to host an afternoon of dialogue and idea-sharing September 22. The Center, established by bioethics institutes at the University of Miami and Indiana University medical schools, will host, "Ethics and Informatics: Challenges, Prospects, Solutions," which will include panels on both domestic and international perspectives. Special guests include bioethics experts from the White House, World Health Organization, and the Office of the National Coordinator.
