New Fellows recognized for excellence in the use of informatics in practice

The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) announced the 2019 class of 154 Fellows in the FAMIA Applied Informatics Recognition Program – a program meant to recognize AMIA members who apply informatics skills and knowledge within their professional setting, who have demonstrated professional achievement and leadership, and who have contributed to the betterment of the organization.

FAMIA was established in May 2018 with the inaugural class inducted at the AMIA 2019 Clinical Informatics Conference.

“I’m delighted to welcome our second class of AMIA fellows,” said Douglas B. Fridsma, MD, PhD, FACP, FACMI, AMIA President and CEO. “The FAMIA credential recognizes the successes of applied informatics professionals, and I look forward to seeing this program grow as the importance of applied clinical informatics increases.”

FAMIA recognizes professionals who apply informatics skills and knowledge towards the goals of enhanced personal and population health, improved organizational performance and learning, and individual empowerment in their health, care, and research.

A formal induction ceremony will be held at the AMIA 2020 Clinical Informatics Conference in Seattle, May 19-21, 2020.
