AMIA engages in a wide array of policy discussions, spanning multiple Federal Agencies and the Congress. Broadly, AMIA focuses on policies that impact the science, application and field of informatics. On a semiannual basis AMIA identifies a more focused set of key priority topics, depending on a number of factors, including the policy and political environment, staff-identified opportunities and AMIA member input. Currently, AMIA’s Public Policy Platform includes the following priority issues:
- Health IT Patient Safety
- Workforce and Education
- Data Sharing in Research
- Health IT Standards and Interoperability
- Patient Data Access
- Electronic Clinical Quality Measurement
While it is expected that AMIA will engage on a number of additional issues, AMIA has established specific positions meant to help accomplish specific goals. Please review the hyperlinked briefs associated with each issue for more information.
