Informatics Partnership Council (IPC)

AMIA’s Informatics Partnership Council (IPC) is the home for leading organizations to connect and collaborate on shared informatics interests. The IPC welcomes one liaison from our Corporate Member companies. Active participants in the IPC have played a vital role in advancing the role of industry within AMIA as well as providing valuable insight and innovation for the informatics community.
