Maturity models are instruments to define and facilitate organization management with regard to a particular function or behavior. Maturity models allow organizational self-assessment based on multiple axes, including organizational culture, process standardization and technology to arrive at a final overall maturity level, and also allowing organizations to identify areas of weakness. The informatics community developed and applied a number of maturity models in the informatics and IT space. (e.g. research IT, analytics, data governance, SDOH, and EDW). The AMIA Informatics Maturity Working Group will provide a home for informatics maturity activities, enabling individuals developing and applying these models to learn and share best practices and tools.

The Working Group will allow individuals and organizations developing and applying these models to share best practices and tools. We anticipate that the group will also collect multi-institution data sets for benchmarking. Based on the popularity of previous maturity workshops, we also anticipate maturity-focused workshops at AMIA meetings.
