We invite you to participate in the ACMI 2019 Winter Symposium—to connect, learn, and grow—examining our future within a historical context for a number of today’s important challenges. The leadership of Fellows in the American College of Medical Informatics provides the needed expertise, foundational knowledge, and perspectives to propose important solutions and next steps in exploring these issues.
The 2019 ACMI meeting will be focused on how informatics can be used to develop the information needed to effectively treat a patient based on both the patient’s biology and biography, or what some call medicine-based evidence.
Evidence-based medical practice is intended to reduce unexplained clinical variability and improve patient outcomes. It developed in response to medical practice that was overly reliant on observational studies and personal experience. While this approach has demonstrably improved the quality of care for many conditions, it doesn’t answer the common question raised by providers.
