Target Audience

Clinicians, informatics professionals, and other stakeholders committed to improving healthcare processes, outcomes, satisfaction and efficiency through health IT innovations

Learning Objectives

After participating in the AMIA 2019 Clinical Informatics Conference, the learner should be better able to:

  • Apply evidence- or experience- based models of informatics practices to improve healthcare
  • Leverage informatics tools to better engage in team-based care
  • Connect emerging trends in health and health IT policy and regulatory efforts that impact care delivery
  • Identify relevant public and population health informatics strategies for prevalent health issues
  • Develop leadership skills and opportunities unique to health informatics professionals
  • Assess and improve the application of health IT infrastructure best practices

This live activity is being planned as a CME, nurse CE, and MOC-II activity (for diplomates in clinical informatics).

Accreditation Statement

The American Medical Informatics Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation Statement

The American Medical Informatics Association designates this live activity for a maximum of 17 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

ABPM Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Credit

Maximum MOC-II credits: 17

The American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) has approved this activity for a maximum of 17 LLSA credits towards ABPM MOC Part II requirements.

ABPM-approved MOC LLSA (Livelong Learning and Self Assessment) involves asking learners four multiple choice questions with a single best answer for every 60 minutes of instruction. Learners are to receive meaningful feedback in the form of an explanation of why the right answer is correct.

Learners will be able to download a Self-assessment booklet in the meeting app before the meeting begins.

A diplomate claiming MOC-II credit will do so via the meeting evaluation, available after the meeting in the AMIA virtual education site.

Deadline for claiming MOC-II credit is June 3, 2019, 8 AM.

AMIA will track attendee MOC-II credits claimed through our system and report them to the ABPM by June 15, 2019. Clinical informatics diplomates must claim their MOC-II credit through AMIA in order to correctly track accrual of their MOC-II credits.

AMIA is approved by The American Board of Pathology as a provider of Self Assessment Modules. The ACGME competencies addressed by this activity are: Patient Care, Practice-based Learning and Improvement, Interpersonal & Communications Skills, Professionalism, and Systems-based Practice. For a full explanation of the ACGME competencies in the context of clinical informatics, see Safran C et al. Program requirements for fellowship education in the subspecialty of clinical informatics. J Am Med Inform Assoc. 2009 Mar-Apr;16(2):158-66.

AMIA will track credits earned by clinical informaticians board-certified through the American Board of Pathology using the reporting mechanism provided by the ABPath via ACCME PARS.
