The AMIA Clinical Research Informatics Distinguished Paper Award will be given on an annual basis to the paper determined to be most meritorious out of all papers submitted to the CRI Summit. The ability to recognize exemplary CRI scholarship provides both an incentive for individuals working in the CRI domain to submit their best work to AMIA meetings, to become active AMIA members by engaging in other AMIA CRI-related activities. In addition, this award provides a mechanism of enhancing the ability of the association to recognize thought leaders in the CRI domain.
