AMIA 2019

Regenstrief Institute has been on the cutting edge of informatics for 50 years. Institute research scientists will present their latest research and lead discussions about the future applications of data, electronic health records and artificial intelligence at the American Medical Informatics Association 2019 Annual Symposium, November 16-20 in Washington, D.C.

The annual meeting is the foremost symposium for the science and practice of biomedical informatics, bringing together informatics professionals from diverse backgrounds. This year’s theme is “Informatics: From Data to Knowledge to Action,” with panels and presentations focusing on how to turn data into actionable solutions to improve health and healthcare.

More than a dozen Regenstrief researchers are participating in panels and workshops and presenting abstracts and posters on topics such as the intersection of dental and medical data, public health informatics workforce skills and needs, and user-centered approaches to develop clinical decision support.

Eneida Mendonca, M.D., PhD, Regenstrief vice president for research, will join members of the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) Leadership Consortium for a Value & Science-Driven Health System in a panel discussing opportunities and challenges related to the expanded application of artificial intelligence in healthcare.

Regenstrief President and Chief Executive Officer Peter Embí, M.D., M.S., is leading a learning showcase on Regenstrief Institute, which is celebrating 50 years of innovation.

Titus Schleyer, DMD, PhD, is leading the AMIA/HL7 FHIR® App Showcase. Teams will demonstrate their FHIR® apps that are currently in use in a clinical setting.

AMIA is the leading professional association for informaticians, and its mission is to use informatics to transform health care. AMIA and its members play a leading role in assessing the effect of health innovations on health policy and advancing the field of informatics. Three Regenstrief Institute faculty sit on the organization’s board of directors. Dr. Embí is the board chair, Dr. Schleyer is the treasurer, and Theresa Cullen, M.D., M.S., is the secretary.
