AMIA 2013 Annual Symposium
November 16-20, 2013 Washington, DC
The AMIA Annual Symposium is the leading scientific meeting for biomedical and health informatics research and practice. Biomedical and health informatics is the scientific discipline that seeks to develop and use information to improve health care, to assist biomedical research across the continuum from molecules to populations, and to empower practitioners and the public in their quest for better health for all.
This is an exciting time for the field, between the opportunities and challenges posed for the information sciences by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the ever-growing concern for patient safety in an increasingly information technology-laden environment, and the need for health information and communication by researchers, practitioners, and the public. Without doubt, biomedical and health informatics is capturing the attention and interest of virtually everyone who hears the word “informatics”.
