Creating Informatics Tools, Resources, Training Opportunities, and Organizational Models to Support and Transform Translational Research
The AMIA 2016 Joint Summits Informatics Implementation Track is dedicated to exchange of information and ideas, report-outs from best-of-breed software teams, gap analyses, requirements gathering, professional development opportunities, networking sessions and mentoring opportunities geared specifically to support existing or new CRI implementation experts.
Content for the four-day event consists of: interactive working sessions designed to promote collaboration and group-wide discussions; invited talks and panel discussions from leaders in the field; and exercises designed to promote networking and partnership.
The Informatics Implementation Track has been designed by one of the premier innovators in the field, Paul Harris, PhD, Vanderbilt University and a team of experts.
Dr. Harris is creator of REDCap - a flexible web-based data management software platform, and the REDCap consortium - a network of 1100 academic and non-profit partner sites from 85 countries using the REDCap software platform. He is an internationally recognized expert and has extensive experience in data management and translational research. He is also the 2015 recipient of the AMIA Donald A. B. Lindberg Award for Innovation in Informatics.
