Target Audience

The target audience for this knowledge-based live activity includes physicians, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, and other clinicians; health information technology professionals; computer scientists and systems developers; policy-makers; public health professionals; biomedical engineers and bioinformaticians; consultants and vendor representatives; medical librarians; academic researchers and scientists; and other professionals involved in the collection and dissemination of health information.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this live activity, the learner should be better able to:

  • Analyze the latest research and best practices in biomedical and health informatics and its translation to improved individual and population outcomes
  • Identify opportunities and challenges posed for the health information sciences by current national/international policies
  • Exchange ideas with participants on novel methods for capturing and assessing clinical data; exchange research results to improve patient and population care; and consider opportunities for collaboration in biomedical and health informatics
  • Gain insights on how to contribute to leading medical informatics change in one’s professional setting

Accredidation Statement

The American Medical Informatics Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation Statement/h2>

The American Medical Informatics Association designates this live activity for a maximum of 25.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

ABPM Maintenance Certification (MOC) Credit

The American Board of Preventive Medicine (ABPM) has approved this activity for a maximum of 25.5 LLSA credits towards ABPM MOC Part II requirements.

ABPM-approved MOC LLSA involves asking learners four multiple choice questions with a single best answer for every 60 minutes of instruction. Learners receive meaningful feedback in the form of an explanation of why the right answer is correct. The self-assessment booklet will be provided shortly before the Annual Symposium via AMIA’s meeting app at the “MCQs” tab. AMIA will announce its availability to registrants before the live meeting. 

A diplomate claiming MOC-II credit will do so via the meeting evaluation, also available after the meeting in the AMIA virtual education site.

AMIA is approved by The American Board of Pathology as a provider of Self Assessment Modules. The ACGME competencies addressed by this activity are: Patient Care, Practice-based Learning and Improvement, Interpersonal & Communications Skills, Professionalism, and Systems-based Practice. For a full explanation of the ACGME competencies in the context of clinical informatics, see Safran C et al. Program requirements for fellowship education in the subspecialty of clinical informatics. J Am Med Inform Assoc. 2009 Mar-Apr;16(2):158-66.

AMIA will track attendee MOC-II credits claimed through our system and report them to the ABPM by the end of 2019. Clinical informatics diplomates must claim their MOC-II credit through AMIA in order to correctly track accrual of their MOC-II credits.

AMIA will track credits earned by clinical informaticians board-certified through the American Board of Pathology using the reporting mechanism provided by the ABPath via ACCME PARS.
