AMIA 2018 Clinical Informatics Conference-Co-chairs' Tips for Successful Submissions

AMIA has extended the deadline to November 28, 2017 for abstract submission for the AMIA 2018 Clinical Informatics Conference (formerly iHealth).

This conference's focus continues to be applied clinical informatics and targets those clinicians and developers whose focus is on improving the delivery of healthcare services and patient outcomes.

Clinical Informatics: Board Certification through the Practice Pathway – and Beyond

Clinical Informatics was approved as a subspecialty by the American Board of Medical Specialties in 2011. Clinical informaticians “transform health care by analyzing, designing, implementing, and evaluating information and communication systems that enhance individual and population health outcomes, improve patient care, and strengthen the clinician-patient relationship.” (Gardner et al, 2009) The clinical informatician applies informatics methods, concepts, and tools to the practice of medicine.

Competencies for Master's Programs in Health Informatics

Many institutions across the country are offering or planning to offer Master’s programs in Health Informatics. AMIA has begun working with the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM) to develop accreditation standards.  As part of this effort, the Health Informatics Accreditation Council has drafted a set of competencies. This webinar will describe the rationale for this initiative, relevant prior work in this area, a formal framework for health informatics knowledge and skills, and proposed definitions for competencies.

The Changing Landscape of Patient Safety

This talk will describe new directions in patient safety that are critical to ensure that hospitals, health systems, and providers in the ambulatory care center are providing the safest care. Based on extensive experience in patient safety research and operations, Dr. Gandhi will describe these new areas (such as patient engagement, safety across the care continuum, and health information technology) where significant work needs to be done to continue to move forward the safety agenda to prevent harm to patients.
